The post i created last friday was about how I felt the stitches and was not ready to move onto week 2. I have taken a 3 days gap since which can be a fine line between quitting and just carrying on.
My mind was telling me, why not skip this week too and restart from monday. Somewhere deep inside me my voice was telling me, I would just be wasting the time and effort i made running those other three days. I also had that urge to have that great feeling after running. So I set out on my rerun and I really surprised myself because i breezed through it. I have taken on board the advice i had received from here such as, running on the stitch side, sipping on water, waiting half an hour after I have eaten something! Now I can finally say i am ready for week 2! I just need to take my time with this, i will eventually get there and enjoy my runs more!
