Hello lovely runners
Just back from run 2 of week 5 and I'm HOT! It's very warm here today and I've not been this red-faced since I did my very first C25k run on a sunny August afternoon. It was hard work today, but I did it!
I was pleasantly surprised at how I coped with the first run, and when Laura told me to slow down I had a big smile on my (red and sweaty!) face. I could have probably gone on a bit more, which is certainly heartening for W5R3. The second run was a bit more taxing. It took me round a boring bit of my route so the time seemed to drag a bit more. When Laura piped up with "halfway through" I felt like I'd have to dig deep, so I got my head down and actually felt good at the end. I think I might have actually gone a bit faster in the last couple of minutes hence feeling really tired!
Anyway - 20 minutes solid still seems a big deal, but that's what I'll be attempting on Sunday!
Wish me luck guys
I'll check in and let you know how I get on.
