Woaw! That was a bit of a shock to the system! For the first time in the schedule I've jogged more than I've walked! I actually found it more of a mental exercise than a physical. As I puffed along I was constantly having to argue with myself as I was thinking "I can't do this! I can't run for 5 minutes!" but my inner angel was arguing with my inner demon and saying "You can do anything if you really want to". I kept going and I did it!!!! YEay!!!!! I felt VERY proud!
Hopefully Run 2 will be less of a shock to the system. Does anyone else find this more of a mental test? I'm not saying that the jogging is easy - but it is not killing me either, and really it's my brain that would make me stop, rather than the huffing and puffing as I jog around the park. Maybe that is why the NHS C25K is such a success - because Laura is talking to our inner devil and keeping us going?
Is this the time when the tumbleweeds start to float across my viewpoint as absolutely nobody else confirms that they also have an inner angel and an inner demon (and it's time to visit the psych ward of the local hospital....)? ;oP
