Had my 4th post graduation run this morning and I really enjoyed it. Had my brand new Aldi trousers and fluorescent pink top, garmin f110 ( birthday pressie yesterday) and The mavericks on play. I felt great. Running at my own pace( no husband running with me - he is lovely but kind of puts me off by running too fast at the beginning), sun on my face and nice and cool.
I am really pleased it went well because my first 3 runs after graduation have been a struggle. I went back to my railway track route and, according to the Garmin, I covered 4.12 k in 30 minutes. First time I have had real stats so I am well chuffed with that. Going to work up to 5k and go for the park run by the end of November.
For any new runners, 10 weeks ago I had never run since school sports ( hated running then) and never thought I could run. I am 56 and the programme worked a treat. So stick with it and be proud of yourselves! Also... The aldi running clothes seem great!
