After posting on here a few weeks ago about the pain in my legs and how defeated I felt after W1 R1 I can't believe I finished the first run of week 4 today and loved every minute of it! Okay, 'loved' may be a bit OTT but I enjoyed it even if it was hard work. When I was told by the app that I had one minute left it felt like the longest minute of my life but I did it!
After sticking to the same route for the first three weeks I decided to try a different one today. I was in two minds whether to do this at the start of a new week, not to mention a week where the running time is increased by some margin but I'm glad I did, it really did add to the enjoyment of the run. Today was also the first time I felt like I was really running if that makes sense?
Today was also my first run in the rain. I was debating whether to wait to see if the rain stopped or to put the run off until tomorrow but in the end I got out there and actually loved getting wet whilst I ran. My main worry was my phone getting wet but it was fine!
I've now decided that my running days will be Friday, Sunday and Tuesday. I did intend to just go out every second day but I think I prefer having set days like this. It means it'll take me longer to finish C25K but that doesn't bother me. I'm just so happy that I started it. My only regret is I didn't do it years ago!
