So, after a great run 1 I was looking forward to run 2. When I woke up I didn't feel unwell, but didn't feel right. I headed off for the run (I drive & park) I wasn't feeling positive but put it down to gremlins. I started the run and after 5 mins my heart rate shot up and I was sweating like I did in w1. Anyway, after 10 mins I was sick. I gave up on the run and started walking back to the car - I felt so cold and although feeling not well I was so annoyed I 'only' ran 10 mins. What a turn around... A few weeks back I couldn't run 10 mins, and I was annoyed I only ran 10 mins when ill.
Anyway, today I did w9r1. It was actually pretty easy. I was knackered at the end, but it was so positive. Ran over 5k too. I don't care about graduation because I don't see that as a completion point. I will keep running 3 times a week anyway.
To anyone starting out - we all have our ups and downs. Just keep going. You can do it... so many of us have.
