Week 5 Run 2...procrastination beaten!

Ok...I sat here today sniffing, feeling sorry for myself, telling myself I was too busy looking after my 2 year old grand-daughter, it was too warm, blah, blah, blah.

Put GD down for a sleep, put on my running gear, took a couple of puffs of inhaler (just in case) and snorted some olbas oil and told myself to get out there!

Luckily it had clouded over somewhat and I actually found myself hoping it would rain...the 5 minute warm up was over before I knew it and I was shogging (shuffle/jogging)....I was quite surprised when Laura said I was already half way through. The last 4 minutes were actually ok. I started to believe that I could do this.

I think I may have picked up the pace a bit too much half way through cos I started to puff a bit and that last 60 seconds seemed an awful lot longer than a minute!!

Long story short - I did it!!! I am sitting here feeling a bit knackered but amazed! To those who of struggled with this run today - heads up, tomorrow is another day and you will not be beaten.
