I was going to leave work early to get home early to run early to do everything else in my evening early. Then I ended up chatting to a colleague, which delayed me, which delayed the journey home, and so on. In the back of my mind I was thinking to myself, 'There's no way I can be bothered to run tonight. I'll just do it tomorrow instead.' I decided that I was going to get some fast food and get drunk tonight.
But then I got home. I hadn't picked up fast food. After a quick snack and a ten-minute sit down, I was out there! The biting wind almost made me turn around. But then I just got on with it and completed the podcast!
I'd worried when starting the program that my cardiovascular fitness would let me down. I 'smirked', as I like to call it, on-and-off during my university days, and knew this area wasn't my strongest. Surprisingly though I'm finding breathing less of an issue! I never thought my legs would give me any problems, although they were a bit ache-y in the final minute or so of the last run of the session. I was slightly tempted to pause to pet some cats which were out on the streets, but I kept on going and completed the podcast.
Overall, I feel really proud of myself, and feel as though I am ready to take on the next podcast on Sunday. I hope that other people are feeling good about themselves!
