Well I took my kit to work. It was blowy but warm and I thought it looked like rain so I wore my running water proof, but after 2 seconds I was boiled alive so tied it round my waist. My mind just wondered and the tunes on the shuffle worked well for me, spurring me on. I wasn't surprised when Laura said I'd done 10 mins in fact I was glad of a bit longer just for the thinking time. Actually at the end when she said id 5 mins left I almost had a little spurt of energy and upped the pace a fraction (not noticeable to the human eye you understand just me😝)
I was thinking of changing my route, and part of me would love to run along the prom, but something keeps stopping me. I'm a bit shy (self conscious) about all this running, and I'm worried that people will see me and laugh.
If I get anxious I know my legs will seize and I'll stop breathing. So for tonight I thought running 28mins is enough to deal with and I ran the railway line again but the opposite way and it was mucky in places and I had to do big yeehaas over the muddy bits so I didn't get much of a rhythm going. I managed it though, and tonight the time seemed to go faster. I'm determined to run along that prom though, I know I can do it. How did / does everyone get over the self conscious bit ? Hope everyone else had a good run tonight, at least it's a bit warmer!!
