...concentrated on my breathing, so attempting not to resemble a gasping fish out of water!!
This week was quite hard work and I'd felt like I should feel more comfortable by the end of the week, but not when I set off today - soooo nervous (why?!...that'd be those brain gremlins I hear talk of). Then, just before the 2nd 3 minute run, Laura goes on about breathing and stuff and I thought, okay, so I'll try to concentrate on that...then, hey presto, breathing in through my nose forced me to gasp less and take much needed control of something that has felt like a consequence of running, rather than something I should be giving attention to. It also took my thoughts away from the one foot in front of the other thing going on below the lungs! Needless to say, I felt I'd made progress, if only in the breathing department, and my posture improved
So, onwards to the dreaded week five...aaaargh! :s
Thanks to everyone for sharing your ups and downs...you help so much when I'm trying to get my head in gear!
