I've been looking at a lot of other people's posts on here. I can't believe how lucky I am to find this community of people all following the same plan. The supportive comments on my previous posts have really helped me keep going, so I hope it's okay if I report on my 3rd run? It was very very cold to start with today, but I found it so much easier already, even though I remain unconvinced that I have a runner's physique. The more suitable trainers I'm now wearing, (although not strictly proper running shoes), are making a difference. I'm getting further up the canal, running past semi-frozen water, breathing in pleasant wood-burning smells from the houseboats, and managing to block out the background noise of the parallel A-road. Lastly, I've found the podcasts now, which are way better than using the app. There's more description about how briskly to walk, how to run so you aren't too out of breath etc. Onto week 2 next
