Just a quick update following yesterdays post when I was having problems with the gremlins of self-doubt. All your supportive comments really helped me get my ass back into gear and remember how lucky I am to be able to run at all! Went out with our Beginners group last night and we were running 2 x 2 mins with 2 mins recovery then 15 mins continuous. It was great! Breathing was a bit all over the place but it usually is and I am working on that, but the legs were good, we ended the run with a hill (I hate hills) but it was fine! Legs felt strong, I felt (briefly) invincible. Finished on a real high and remembered why I am doing this, it makes me feel good, usually only when I have finished but occasionally even while I am running. Thanks everyone you really helped me pick myself up again.
