After my troubles with W5R3 and subsequent loss of confidence, but then reinvigorated by all your encouragement I finally got back out today, a little later than planned due to one thing or another. Not been running for two weeks, so took it back to W3R1 in the hope to build some confidence. Was a lovely sunny morning so went to the local park, along with about a million dogs and their owners which provided me with some experience of dodging moving obstacles! Anyway I took it slow, but found it quite hard going mainly with breathing but also my legs felt like lead! Was nice to be in the park with the birds, crocuses and even some early daffodils, certainly lifted my spirits anyway.
So despite it feeling hard going I finished, and didn't feel exhausted afterwards so there's progress. Trying not to feel frustrated at having to go backwards, and already worried about facing week 5 again but will try and take one run at a time. Roll on Tuesday and W3R2!
