W7R2 you lot made me do it!

An hour after receiving several nudges in the right direction I ventured out, and it was absolutely fine! :) :)

I ditched the podcasts for the first time ever (sorry Laura, I'll be back soon!) and just ran 25 minutes with my own music. I was saving that reward for my first post-graduation run, but I felt I really needed to exorcise my horrible W7R1, so I treated myself to a bit of classic rock and other guilty pleasures. It really helped and I felt much much better today.

Thank you so much to everyone on here for the encouragement! :)

Now to embarrass number one child by turning up to the school playground looking like a very damp beetroot....

I am glad you got out there - thinking about it can be worse than the actual doing (well maybe not but you know what I mean).
