Went for my 2nd run of week 2 last night. All went well, although I feared the worst as the first run was certainly hard going. Luckily it all settled down for the second and subsequent runs and was pretty good overall. It probably probably didn't help as I was doing the run at 8.00pm when I was shattered after a tough day at work, but as I get up for work at 5.45 every morning I can't face getting up even earlier to run in the morning, much as I'd like to.
I did a 10 minute warm-down walk rather than the usual 5 minutes as I'd mis-judged the distance (I tend to take different routes based on spur-of-the-moment decisions, so that if I'm approaching a road junction that I'd have to stop at to wait for traffic during the run, or just as a run's about to start, I'll carry on running around the corner rather than across the junction and use different roads) but didn't turn the mp3 off after the 5 minutes, so heard the beginning of the week 3 podcast. EEEKK!! Seems like a major push forward - I wish I hadn't heard it!
I'll have to start chanting a mantra - "must trust Laura... must trust Laura..."!
I'll have to trust that physically I should be ready for it, but I think it's going to be a much harder psychological battle to BELIEVE I can do it. Anyway, stupid to panic yet as I've got W2R3 to do on Saturday first!
