I haven't posted much because I wasn't sure how this was all going to work out, new year resolution was to give it a go and see, no pressure etc, I wasn't sure I was really built to run, I feel a bit like phoebe in friends, all flapping arms and legs, not enough coordination.
But I am delighted to report that I made the jump from w2 to w3 without too much difficulty and I am on cloud nine about it! Beginning of week one the thought of running for three minutes was unimaginable. I honestly was not looking forward to today but I kept calm, kept relaxed, shoulders and wrists loose, just let my feet and legs swing and guess what, it was fine!! Not sure about the man behind the hedge analogy but it made me giggle!
So to everyone starting out, this programme really is amazing and, at the risk of a cliche, really does work! Starting to look forward to my runs, as is the dog who is building up to 5k with me, not even the weather puts me off.... Feel as high as a kite right now!!
