Well guys , just completed my first run on week 7. (wey-hey).
I don't think I've ever been so chuffed with myself.
I started this program in January and when I saw what was expected by week 6 I was think this might be the time I jack it in.
Anyhow, I managed to run for nearly all of the last run of wk 6 but just had to stop at the end cos I was literally knackered.
This was a real bummer because on checking the app on my phone I only had 3 minutes left to run ( arhh nitemare).
Anyway I decided instead of repeating wk6 I'd try week 7 and chance my arm.
As it turns out that was the best decision that I've made since starting the program.
I actually did a little bit of a dash at the end when Laura said theres only 60 seconds left (god that felt good).
Anyhow the point to this post being that somebody said a while back that part of the running thing was mental and how you see things in your own head.
Well hears the funny thing.
I started this program in jan at 17.5 st and was running at 5.30pm in the evenings.
This was great because it was dark and theres no one about.
However I did realise that sooner or later on a 9 week plan I'm gonna start running in the light or start running later every week (hey summer times a coming).
And so it was that Saturday was my first run at 3.40pm. And to my amazement my local walk was ram packed with walkers and dogs and the like.
But best of all it was also packed with cyclists and other joggers who just nodded and waved as they went past.
But the actual point of this post is that of all the "normal people " going about their business nobody started to point at me or take the piss at fatty running past because to be honest most people are too ingrossed in their own shit to worry about what you do.
So THE MORAL IS GET OF YOUR ARSE, FORGET THE REST, AND AS SOMEBODY SAID just do it.
all the best to you.
