Ok so I thought I would change my route today instead of my whole run being along the reasonably level towpath I started out on the route that has a road bridge after a few minutes. Well I clearly can't do inclines - when I got to just below the brow I thought I was going to expire - my lungs hurt so much I had to stop to catch my breath. The first time I've had to stop since starting the programme. I carried on after a minute disappointed but thought I'd see if I could do the rest of the run. After I was back on the towpath about 20 minutes into the run a guy on a bike came past yelling at me to watch out runners would be coming through ... and come though they did - thundering past me and forcing me into the hedge so many times that just after Laura told me I'd done 25 minutes and another wave of runners forced me into a bushes I accepted defeat and took the next alleyway off the towpath and back home. Feeling a bit demoralised now.
