Thanks everyone to encourage me to carry on when I was not confident enough after weeks break just after my week 6. I have been terribly busy, was away for the social media for a while. But I remembered your advice and carried on.I could not be very regular, in stead of three runs in some weeks it was two or only one. But I managed to manage my time and now I go for a run during office time just before sun set and then come back to work again.
During week 8, it became really difficult for me. I started being tired after 10 minutes and after half way I thought I wont be able to carry on. But I did. Yes! And that encouraged me to be regular again. Quite surprisingly on my first run in week 9 (Thursday), I felt better, even after 15 minutes, I was feeling confident that I could finish it and with pride.
Yess! I ran 4 km in 30 minutes with an average pace of 7 min 30 sec per kilometer. For the first time I kept record of distance and pace using myfitnesspal. I am hoping to work on my speed now. Well but right after that I had my period, due to terrible pain I could not run yesterday. For the last two days I feel a burning pain in my right ankle, I don't know whether I was injured during my last run.
Now I cant just wait to go out and run. As soon as I start feel ok, I will go for my second run of week 09. I am just two runs away from the goal. I can't believe myself that I can run for 30 minutes without any break.... But what can I do to get relief from that pain. Did anybody face such?
Thanks Lora... Thanks Couch to 5K... and also thanks to me for sticking on this one thing in my life.
