What a difference from my last attempt and my first run. My unco-ordinated body was more relaxed, less horrified and bewildered and like, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!!!????"
I did every interval and I managed to recover enough during every walk. I even managed to "run" slower and more relaxed. It was raining and I swallowed a beastie ...But I did it!
I was really tired when I go home though and didn't really feel much more awake later but I was very agitated when i went to bed.....not sure why - probably the blimmin shock of this run being noticeably easier than all the others.
I was very anxious about this run but I just told myself that there's no way of predicting how a run will go so all you can do is go for it and see how it pans out.
I have such a crazy backstory and I just cannot believe that I'm doing this. Half the fun is that on it's own - the sheer unlikelihood of it all. I keep saying it's a miracle, but this isn't something that just happened to me. I did this!
And each and every one of us did it too. We are all, in our own ways, warriors and I hope we all genuinely enjoy the sense of accomplishment and pride we feel - we deserve it.
