You might have seen my post about week 6 run 3 where I 'failed'. I took a few days off intentionally and then a few more unintentionally (work!). I decided to draw a line under that run and move on, we all have bad runs right! And I thought of the positives - I still managed to run for 15 minutes and I got my fastest mile!
So I went back out tonight with new determination. I steeled myself by saying that if I found it too hard I'll re-do week 6 run 2 tonight and take it from there! The first 8 minutes weren't the best, calf was niggling, gremlins were niggling!! Then I found my rhythm and it was fine from there, not fast by any means but hey I was running! At minute 21 I had to have a word with myself but other than that a pretty solid run. As I was running I noticed my breathing is a lot less erratic than it used to be and this made me smile! Somethings working! Well obviously, if I can now run 25 minutes!!! I've also noticed that while I haven't lost much weight (just a pound or two), my waist is smaller than it used to be!
Now that I know I can do it I'm looking forward to the next one!
