Nailed W1 R3!

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.

  • Yippee!!!! Yes it is truly amazing - but keep following it and it works!! I've got R2Wk5 tomorrow - I am always surprised how much progress I am making and those further along than me say the same too - so we all encourage each other.

    Some people I know are a bit shocked by what i am doing - my enthusiasm for it is alien to them - but "you don't know man, you weren't there!"

    Keep going BOING!! x
