I did my R3 of W6 early this morning and I DID IT!
Took Lucky Ducky with me and we decided a change of route was needed. I think we were both a bit bored with the same route running around the neighbourhood. It was a bit odd getting in the car to go running but we parked up by the riverside in our town and warmed up around the car park. We then set off for the 25 minutes along the river. No pavements, no cats, no cars, no undulating driveway drop curbs etc. which made it much simpler to negotiate in the half light. The river was calm and peaceful, swans swanning about and nearly no one in sight. This route takes us along the river and park land and I must say its beautiful. This is where the Park Run is held every week. I'm aiming to join this when I've got the hang of running for around 30 minutes but 25 was enough today.
TWENTY FIVE MINUTES! That is a complete milestone. I'm so chuffed and still on a high.
I was so happy at the end of it and so knackered too but what the hell, if it wasn't hard it wouldn't be worth doing. Just one step at a time.........
