I have aspergers and sometimes everything gets overwhelming. This morning I had to do something I find difficult (involved asking people for something which I find excruciating) so when I got home feeling shaky I looked out of the window at the rain and almost cried.
Then instead of curling up in bed or working out my budget (very calming to my odd brain!) or burying myself in a book I decided to go for a walk in the park.
Just a walk.
In the rain.
But then after a mile of feeling sorry for myself and stroking all the dogs I came across I decided to run for a bit. I know it is against the rules as I shouldn't run 2 days in a row but I needed to do something.
I didn't want to run the 25 minutes my next run demands so I thought I'd run up to a certain point and then walk back so I ended up running for 12 minutes before turning round, walking for a bit then running to one of my favourite songs (I blame Queen) for just shy of 4 mins more. Then I walked home and texted a runner friend to ask for help on Sunday with wk6r3.
I never ask for help. I find it very hard and feel I'm bothering people so I'm quite proud of myself!!
Any way I know it's not strictly c25k but I just wanted to share
