Week 3 day 1 done!

Okay so my running buddy let me down last night. After all the discussions we've had with me pacing myself and her pushing herself, she got an injury.. so I wasn't going to let it become an excuse and went out and did it myself. First thing was half way through my running I realised id forgotten my water but realised that I actually felt more free without it. Secondly I realised how much easier it was to run when you didn't feel like you were chasing someone! I completed the run with a min and a half shaved off my time to do a mile and although I apparently didn't run as far (which doesn't make sense to me as my pace was quicker?!) I came home on cloud 9 knowing it was all me! Back feels a little stiff this morning, not sure its related to my run or not but hoping it eases off. Now lets see if i can repeat it in week3 day 2 on tuesday! x
