A few things I learnt (or is it learned!) today.
1. it really is unlucky to put something on inside out then turn it the right way and put it back on
2. If you run in the rain, leave your glasses at home on these occasions you can see better without them!
3. Don't change your route without first checking it out, especially on your last week.
4. Hills that are do able at the middle/end of a run are still impossible at the beginning as I still struggle with that first five minutes.
Today's run didn't start out too well. Firstly Laura wouldn't play ball so ended up with someone called Carli, then Endomondo wouldn't play ball so had to find Mapmyrun. First 4/5 minutes of running were fine, then hit the slight route change and a hill. Ended up walking for about a minute. After the hill things went quite well and I added an extra five minutes on to the run to make up for the blip in the middle.
Today, for the very first time I wasn't desperate to be told I only had a minute to go so things are looking up.
9 weeks ago I wouldn't have believed I would every reach today but I have. Anyone just starting, trust Laura she knows you know.
