Got up this morning, looking forward to my run, to find my legs were like lead!
Then getting ready for run, found my leggings torn - so I had to sew then up before going out.
Legs were still like lead after my warm up walk but I didn't want to miss my run so I went for it.
It was soo hot and sooo hard going, my breathing was awful and I thought about stopping and walking, then thought just keep pushing on, probably won't finish the whole 25 but just see how long you keep going. Some time later Laura said you've been running for 12 and 1/2 minutes that's half way through, and I thought well I'm on the return journey now just gotta keep going!
Then by 18 minutes, the sun beating down on me, I felt I was struggling so much I needed to stop, but somehow I kept going. Soon Laura was telling I'd run 20 minutes, only 5 to go, and I thought only 5 to go I can do that! I seemed to get my breathing under control......FINALLY...... At about 22 minutes in! Then Laura was telling me only 60seconds left, why not try to go a bit faster for last minute, because it proves you do more even if you think your too tired, I almost laughed out loud, but thought hey it's only 60 seconds right? And then there I saw going faster right through to the end!! WOW, how did I just do that with legs of lead lol
When I got home I checked run keeper and to my complete surprise today is PB for me, the first time I got under 13 minutes, a 12.15 for my first I'm so pleased I forced myself to go with lead legs and even happier I managed to keep going!
So that's run 1 this week, just got to do it twice more before moving on 😀
