Well somebody, somewhere wanted me to have a good first run. Beautiful clear, cool, sunny spring morning. Planned a route and it worked out perfectly - managed to get most of the hilly bits in the 5 minute warm up.
Went half an hour earlier than planned because I'd been awake worrying about it anyway lol. Investing in a decent pair of running shoes more than paid off, no discomfort at all. And I found it a bit easier and a whole lot more enjoyable than I could have imagined - by the sixth one minute run I felt more comfortable running than I thought I ever could. I think I actually did one more run than I should because Laura reset herself to the beginning half way through - I forgive her though .
Thanks to everyone on here yesterday for their incredible support and encouragement - it really did help - this is a great forum.
Looking forward to Wk1 R2 now!!
