Completed the run! YAY! It really felt as if all the gremlins might get the better of me;
My sore shoulders have been so bad the last few nights that I have started taking the meds prescribed which means I'm doubly tired;
My elderly dog is poorly again and had to go out during the night a couple of times for squitteroos;
late on parade due to tiredness, and had to walk dogs before run;
I should really have started work but went for a run feeling incredibly heavy- and then the podcast said the run wasn't available!!! argh. Tried again and managed to get the blasted thing to work. Technology eh...
Yes, rush hour makes it difficult if you have to cross the road a lot!
Yes, it's hard running red-faced past builders, dodging pushchairs and schoolkids!
Yes my right hip joint, shin and buttock were sore, and of course my face was red and dripping with sweat...
BUT I jogged on the spot when I had to wait at traffic lights / for a gap in traffic, and I kept going, finishing 4k in 28 minutes and 33 secs (I had to keep going until I heard the 4K come up). It was hard but I reminded myself that everyone says some runs are indeed hard.
So, week 9 next. So hard to believe!
Anyone tempted to have a go at this C25K milarky I say, as the Nike tag goes, Just Do It. what's the worst that can happen?!
