My birthday was yesterday and he "who would like to think he is in charge" was a complete star and bought me some shiny new Aasics, Fuji Gel trail shoes.
Have been silly busy at work this week, so was a bit cheeky and came home after a hospital appointment and donned new shiny shoes and drove to a local wood where I promptly completed my wk6r2!
Surprised myself because in my whole life I have only ever run once cross country and hated it.
This time I loved it, I mean really loved it! It felt fantastic to be alive and lucky enough to be able to just enjoy a simple pleasure, running in lovely weather, in a lovely setting!
For those just starting out, if anyone told me I would be able to complete this, let alone love it, I would have said you were barking, so hang in there, it does get easier.
To top it all, I did 11 minutes instead of 10 on my second run and even managed to speed up for that last minute!
I now have a huge mug of tea and am sooooo happy and energised
