So today was the day the start of week 6 it could have gone better.
So yes I DID wear my new running top, but I have a confession the weather was rubbish this morning so I got to cover up with my fleece, but it's a start and I am feeling more confident. Thank you every one who took time to reassure me and comment on my last post.
So warm up - yep that was fine.
First 5 minute run - what do you mean five minutes is already up, are you sure, I'm sure it's a little bit longer.
3 minute walk - oh come on isn't 3 minutes up yet this is too long taking ages.
10 minute run - started off fine then I had to stop suddenly to tie my shoe lace and someone choose that moment to replace my thighs with lead. But off we went and carried and then splosh.
Spaniel in the water swimming after coots. Shout at said spaniel. Get ignored by spaniel. Jog on the spot waiting for naughty spaniel to return.
And carry on. Not really sure how much of the 10 minutes in the end I spent actually running.
3 minute walk - spaniel no. No. No. (His name is Ferdinand, or Ferd for short but this becomes No when we are out).
5 minute run - and we're off. Splosh. Ferdinand get out of the canal NOW. Ignored by spaniel. Shout some more while jogging on the spot. Decide to pause podcast while finding suitable spot for spaniel to get out the canal. Put spaniel on lead. Resume podcast and running. Get all in a muddle with headphone and lead combo and battle stupid iPod armband that has decided that moment to start it's descent. Hit the lock and a very short but steep incline and I can't run it, I do normally walk it if it coincides with a run section and start as soon as I'm on the flat again but I just couldn't do it and we only had 60 seconds left as well.
Warm down walk - walked for a smidge and decide to fit in that last 60 seconds of running. Did it. Resume cool down.
And in other news:
Today is my fifth wedding anniversary and Husbands birthday. Happy day with a bit of sadness my Mum never got to see our first anniversary and it was over shadowed by her passing just before. But today also ties up rather nicely with me starting week 6 of this program as around this time 3 years ago we were calling the paramedics to lift me off the floor as my back had given way and resulted in me losing the majority of my mobility
