I decided to start Wk2 today not realising I neded to unlock it. So I tried to sign in but had no signal and the app froze.
Two weeks ago that would have been the perfect excuse to go home - especially as it was raining. But I just put music on and did it anyway.
I just ran for as long as I could and walked til I got my breath back. The runs felt longer and the walks shorter. And I got further along the towpath than I usually do in the same time.
My 5 minutes cool down was more of a stroll though!
I definitely feel ready for week 2 on Monday and, as I've come home soaked today, I think it'll have to be pretty bad weather to stop me.
The other thing I noticed today was that I didn't care about other people! For the past couple of weeks if the towpath has been really busy I've ran around the neighbouring field instead - embarrassed really of being a larger lady in her yoga pants and hoodie spluttering along. Today, still clad in yoga pants and hoodie (I tried some running gear on yesterday and felt too much like an elephant squished into a sausage skin) I didn't care - I felt like a runner! And two "proper" runners acknowledged me as they passed!
