I decided to brave outdoor running again today (for the 3rd time in the program) and apart from the cold air knocking me a bit and making my breathing a bit erratic, I finished week six. I am sure my pace was slower than I run on a treadmill and that is slow (6.5kph) but I did it and passed 3 other friendly joggers on the way.
Feeling pretty good - Laura said I was now a runner! I can't believe how chuffed that made me feel as I huffed and puffed my way home in my bobble hat and day-go-pink running jacket I picked up from Sports Direct .... clearly other clothes as well otherwise that is a horrible image for a Friday morning
If you had said to me 6 weeks ago I would be jogging on the pavements of my town, in the fog/light drizzle at 8.45am I would have laughed at you.
Did I mention Laura said I was a runner now
Keep it up everyone and have a good weekend
