Week 5 run 1 last Wednesday and I developed a nasty pain in my hip and a niggle in my knee. Perhaps because I decided to up the pace a bit when Laura said "just one minute to go". Who knows? Anyway, I didn't go out on Friday as it still hurt. No longer painful on Sunday evening so decided Monday. But should I redo r1 or carry on forward?
I usually go out about 6.45am to fit into my day. Monday morning, woke up at 7.30, it felt too late, but I had a GP appointment at 9 so didn't have to rush, I could almost fit it in. (my route takes about 45mins in total)But then I looked at the drizzle outside. Perhaps not. Anyway how would I have time to get showered and out to the doctor?
At 7.55 I found myself fastening my shoes and going out for wk5r2. No excuses.
The drizzle was gentle, the hip didn't hurt, there were swans on the river. I went straight to my doctor's surgery without going home. They managed to find me a drink of water and were all too polite to say anything about my state of dress and 'glow'.
So, the excuses didn't win, C25K did, and I was astonished and really pleased to complete. Phew!
