Started back on this program today after previous attempts of only getting as far as week 4 (usual making the excuses, not thinking I could do it, etc). And despite a bit of pain in my shins to begin with, it felt great to be doing it again. The shin pain was down to pounding the pavement a bit too hard I think, so I slowed it down a touch and tried to tread lightly, and the last 4 runs seemed easier than the first, even with a slight incline on the last run and cool down! Felt great afterwards too! I am more determined than ever to finish this program this time, aiming to get to the 5K by New Year if I can, but even if it takes me longer, I know it will benefit me in the long run. So here's to run 2 on Sunday! xx
