I DON’T BELIEVE IT !!
I’ve completely completed the complete set of runs.
Distance run? No Idea. Speed? Who cares, I know I don’t.
Length of time continuous running? (Sorry but here we go again) 30 MINUTES. That’s 30 . . . FLAMING. . . MINUTES.
To all those people trying to summon up the courage to start who are lacking confidence, motivation and self-belief - just do it. Take it slow and steady but get your a**e off that couch and do it for yourself.
It hasn’t all been plain sailing; I took a couple of weeks off through niggly knee pain which didn’t get any better or worse following the rest, so I carried on regardless because once I had started this I was not going to allow myself to give up. Even now, at the 15 to 20 minutes mark I get the wobbles and really have to dig down into my self belief storage tank to keep going.
But . . .this has been the best thing I’ve ever done for me. It’s been challenging, trying, educating (about myself), rewarding and lovely and I can’t thank you enough.
My first contribution to the forum, back in January, was along the lines of: I don’t know if I can do this or if I’ll even enjoy doing it. Well I did and I do !!
