No one said it would be so hard but no one told me it would feel this good (wk 7/3)

No one said it would be so hard but no one told me it would feel this good (wk 7/3)

I know i am not following plan but I have just run 6k- I totally can't believe it!!

Not only have I dropped a dress size but I feel so much more postive about- everything.

I have psd I saw a man get knocked over by a bus 2 years ago I did CPR but he died 3 days later.

I have been a nurse for 13 years & this has affected me so badly. Since I've been running nightmares/flashbacks have reduced a LOT- I am thankful for everyone who posts just knowing your not the only one struggling helps so much!

I hope anyone else struggling can find the peace I have through running- just keep going it's not a case of being strong- you are strong & you have the ability to do anything you put your mind to โ˜บ

in the words of the beyonce- 'running from myself no more, I'm ready to face it all'

    hmm, that's a line I've heard before, but let's move swiftly on...

    Well done you. That's a seriously impressive time/distance, esp for W7.

    Running is great for finding inner space/peace etc. I have always envied but never quite understood people who meditate. I'd love to be able to do it, because clearly it brings a lot of inner harmony etc, but I am simply incapable of sitting and thinking of nothing and all that. When I'm running, however, once I get past the first ten minutes of gaspong and getinto my rhythm, I can just zone out completely. I don't alwys run because I am feeling crappy, but when i do, i always come back feeling better.

  • Cheers thought my time was rubbish tbh not bothered about time/pace the distance is a miracle lol

  • Sorry your feeling crappy this book helped me not sure if it would be beneficial for you โ˜บ

  • Hi Jayz

    I found your post very moving. I am so glad you have been able to find peace of mind and solace in your running. Nursing must be so tough, and I can imagine it is hard to close your mind and move on from the life changing and trauma that you must encounter in doing your job.

    Well done to you , and I wish you the very best of luck and continued success xxx
