So I did w6r3 last week and somehow managed to run 25mins so today was supposed to be w7r1. I struggle a bit with my breathing when running outside especially if it's cold, so I've done the majority of my runs on the treadmill.
Today, since it was nice I decided I'd venture outside and go for a run around the local loch which is 3km. I'm completely shocked by the fact that I managed to run the whole distance without stopping once and managed it in 20 minutes!! Even with the fact that I seemed to be running against the wind for what felt like 90% of the circuit!! Soooo I was supposed to run for a further 5 mins but I'm still so pleased that I managed it all!!! I can't believe at I'm almost at the stage where I can call myself a runner !! I think my main problem with running outside is I'm useless at controlling my pace and I'm sure I always go off way too fast then struggle!!
I'm still a bit away from managing a 5k but my aim is to be able to do a parkrun by summer so will see how I go!!!
