Just back from week 5 run 3, in shock that i can actually run that far!20 mins!!!! def a slow jog but who cares!? When i stopped my legs felt slightly disconnected to my body and now inside i'm very hot and glowing like a beetroot! but that doesn't matter! I usually run in the dark when not many people around, but planned to go this morning to avoid the rain forecast for later. The aim was to go at 7am when not v light but that didn't happen(bed too warm!), so stepped out at 7.30. Saw my neighbour and 3 labradors so stopped for chat and pat (always give me a boost they are lovely dogs!). I saw him last on week 2-(my last morning runs) so he was impressed i'm keeping it up! Saw i would have to face the public as full daylight now and there are a surprising amount of cars around. Decided as my throat was crackly to reward myself with mint tic tac each time Laura said"5 mins gone" and must say this worked for me! So for anyone on week 5 don't be afraid its not so bad and you get a real boost when you achieve it!
