Well guys and gals, I actually ventured outside today to do my run instead of running around the living room with my dog looking on as if I've gone crazy. I took all your advice and comments on board. I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I took myself off in the car to a park which is about 5 miles away. It was snowing at the time so I thought great, no one will be around to laugh at me wobbling all over the place.
There was hardly anyone there at all. So I just tuned into Laura and off I went for my third run of the first week. There was a pond with ducks and Canadian geese to look at en route. The time seemed to go quicker when there are things to look at apart from the settee and TV!
I did get a bit of stitch towards the end but found I need to regularise my breathing better. Also the snow cooled down my red face!
Thanks to those who encouraged me to go outdoors.
