I did w3r3 today and I'm pleased to have finished it but it was a bit of a funny one. I've moved back to London, where I've just graduated from uni, from my hometown, so I was unfamiliar to running around the area where I now live. I live near a big common but wasn't quite sure exactly where to go although I didn't let that slow down my pace. But I was running in front of way more people (and traffic on the outskirts!) than I was used to, as well as running on the tarmac paths for the first time (previously just had been on grass). I felt this horrible wave of selfconsciousness and inadequacy, especially I was surrounded by fitter sportier runners, it was awful! But I powered through regardless and I'm so pleased I did.
Out of interest, is it better for the joints/legs/knees to run on grass or tarmac?
Now looking forward to stepping up a pace in week 4!
