So on 23rd August I finally braced myself for the horror of running, downloaded the app, dug out my running shoes (from one of my many previously failed attempts) and went to the park.
I can't believe looking back only a month, the pain of trying to run for 20 seconds of Laura's 1 minute. I also can't believe (but am chuffed) that yesterday I was able to complete week 4, run 3, and yes it was hard, but I did it, and, sshhh, but actually I really enjoyed it, and find myself looking forward to the running days.
I've signed up for the October virtual runner 5K, and last night timed how long 5K (as week 4, run of mixture of walking and running) took me - 52 minutes, so I guess my aim is to start chowing down on that time and I don't mind if at the end of October I'm walking some of the 5K (I'm sure I will be), I just want to commit to still doing this in a month's time.
Anyway, just wanted to share how much I'm enjoying the running, and how grateful I am for the advice and motivation on this forum.
