Well it's 6 days since I graduated, & due to circumstances beyond my control, haven't been able to run since, until today. So after work got on my running shoes & started 5k+ stepping stones, could I keep up with the 150 beats, NO!, & struggled with my breathing , & had to walk after 1st 3 mins, was having breathing issues, & eventually after 20 mins of walking/ running gave up & headed home, feeling like I had lungs of a gnat! No breathe left, don't know if it was poor air quality, this is the first time I've given up since I started the programme & feel really despondent!! Don't think.I like the stepping stones program, & will repeat week 9 for several more weeks to overcome my deflated mood, & have just noticed my graduate badge has disappeared, now I feel really deflated!!
