I staggered out to do this run with a bit of a surly attitude. I'd not slept well and had spent too long over the last few days typing reports at my computer so felt stiff and unfit. I only went out this morning to avoid starting another report. I suppose couch to 5k is a healthy sort of procrastination!
I found today really tough, perhaps because the podcast music grated and I felt every twinge in my knee and hip and I still don't do any form of incline well. At one point I was almost crawling up a hill being passed by sympathetic looking hikers briskly striding out. I think they were a little concerned at my puce face which clashed somewhat with my Aldi purple t shirt!
I was so relieved to make it to the end in one piece but when I checked my MapMyRun App I discovered it had had a complete meltdown. According to its stats I had only run for 8 mins but travelled 3 kms. By my reckoning that now makes me one of the worlds super athletes and I will be expecting to be contacted by Mo Farrah for training tips!
Oh well, as wise people on here have said before even a bad run (which this one certainly felt) is better than not going out at all. Hopefully W7R2 will be easier.!
