Made myself run today following so much wonderful advice from you all you wonderful people out there...
Here is the lowdown:
I decided to 'run live' using my FB C25k Group giving live updates as I ran ( hello everyone!!)...and everyone was so encouraging it spurred me on...thankyou so much all of you!!
I said to myself ' no expectations, no hard core piffle paffle, just run and enjoy it
I had a few niggles which I decided to ignore and just kept going ( I didn't stop running at all).
I had a proper lucozade drink and a stash of Tooty frooty's, jelly tots and fruit pastilles in my pocket which i had at 5k, 8k, 11k and at the end, and that really helped.
At 14k I was running past the railway line watching the road ahead, totally in my panther zone and it just hit me...BOOM. This is what makes me tick, makes me feel ALIVE and strong. So in true Juicyju style I spread out my arms like an aeroplane ( checking for bikes behind me!!) and then ran with my eyes closed basking in my enjoyment...Then I choked and cried...must be the endorphins too, but it has never hit me like that before.
I ran a total of 17.3k and it was just the best. I could have carried on but I wanted to stop on a high.
So I am determind now to have one or two runs in the week including an interval thing now I know what to do ( thanks everyone), and on non run days do my sons rowing machine. With that plan I think I will be OK for my HM in March.
Thankyou everyone for all your support, I couldn't do it without you all,
