I appreciate I was reluctant to run today: I didn't wake up until 10 and procrastinated till 12:30 when I eventually set off.
As soon as I started running My legs felt heavy and my breathing was difficult but I kept reminding myself it would come good at 8 minutes, and that if it really was awful, I could walk (always works)
.I'm not sure it did get any easier but all I know is my HRM was recording my heartbeat at 156 - 164 but hey, I was still moving and hadn't fainted. Lol
When Laura told me I had ran 12.5 minutes I had a decision to make, turn around and reverse the run or keep on up to the main road and on the A38, so I carried on knowing there would be a longer run.
Well, at 25 minutes I ran another minute and then started to walk. I only walked a minute and decided to listen to some of my old gym music. Once I heard that, I carried on and ran another ten minutes
I wish I could say it was awesome and easy but I can't, but I DID feel an amazing sense of achievement, although I just sat down as I ran in to my garden- and thanks to mapmyrun I can see I ran (including a 5minute walk-) 5.19 km in 41 minutes. an actually ran a whole 36 minutes! Who'd have thought it seven weeks ago?
However, When does it become an absolute pleasure? Lol
Janet (feeling pretty happy with herself)
