Hi all ,I went off to the park to do this today, I didn't want the lorries and cars, rather I wanted a bit of peace and quiet and Laura's motivation. I was a bit daunted by the 5 minute runs and wanted somewhere a bit calmer to gather my thoughts. Anyway, I did it! I was so pleased with myself, it wasn't too bad, at least I did it!
Came home really quite pleased and believing that anything is possible. The only problem is I looked at mapmyrun out of interest to see how far I had gone and it was only 3.3 km, I knew I was slow because the only way I would have managed was to go slow, but really! I feel like this is taking all my effort and ok, I know I have improved after each week and the recovery after the run is quicker, but I feel a bit down now because I am just plodding around. Maybe I should not look at mapmyrun and just enjoy what I am doing because up until I looked at the blimmin thing I have been enjoying this.
Any suggestions? I'm sure I could walk quicker! x
