Just come back from W5 R3 and still on a high!! Can't quite believe the person that struggled with W1 has just run 20min without stopping - hurrah!!
It's been a tough week to get out and run, had guests staying, toddler not sleeping well and to top it all (sorry men) I got my period for the first time since I started running. Now sorry if this is a bit TMI for some of you, but I bet other ladies have felt like this too - in the past this would have completely de-railed me from the programme and I would have spent the week hormonal and grumpy curled up on the couch with a hot water bottle, snapping at DH and LO. This week I discovered that when my PE teachers of old said exercise would help, this wasn't part of some elaborate torture regime, they spoke the truth! I've felt more energised and less crampy and my husband informs me less snappy!!
Nothing can stop me now - am beginning to believe I can do this! So much so that I have booked on to a twilight race for life 5k for fri 18th oct which should coincide with my graduation run if all remains good.
Fingers crossed and happy running!!!
