Good morning Couchers. Definitely a good morning.
I decided, after the injury break, to carry on with week 7 until I was back to 25 minute runs. The first time I went out I did 15 minutes and then needed two short walks during the last 10. The second time it was 17 minutes and two walks. I felt in a bit of a rut. So this morning I ditched Laura temporarily, put the radio on my mp3 and a watch and set off on a different route.
I decided not to look at the watch until I felt I had to stop. I knew roughly how long I had been running from the radio updates. I won't pretend it was easy, but it felt better than the last two runs. So I took a couple of walking steps and looked at the watch...only two minutes to go to get to the 25! "Bl***y well run woman!" I said to myself....and I did!!
Legs felt like jelly, but my breathing recovered quickly and after stretches and a shower I am on cloud nine!!
Just wanted to share this happy feeling
