Nervous start and euphoric end w3r1

Definitely an owl not a lark so carefully planned this run a good while after my morning porridge(ChelleUK)! Could not believe my nervousness, several trips to loo, trying to persuade unexpected visitor to stay longer and almost accepting a lunch out! Also am I the only one who replies to Laura? 'YesLaura' or 'I will finish Laura'and I did! And came in the house slightly cocky it has to be said. I still can't believe I ran for 3 minutes twice. Don't think I would have done it without this forum I know I would have decided I couldn't before I even tried had I not seen all the encouragements. 😃

  • Well done Bamb !

    Yes I know what you mean, it is hard getting out of the door at times, but you will find it does get easier, you've just got to dull those voices in your head , and not let them win ! :-)

    Keep going, youre doing great ! :-) xxx

  • Thanks poppypug. It's that positivity which all helps 🤗

  • Well done on getting out of the door! I am excellent at procrastinating, my record so far is about 4 hours. Sounds to me like you are far more polite to Laura than I am, I has questioned her parentage many times 🙄Stick with I and you will have many chances to feel cocky! Keep on running 🏃🏃🏃

  • Haha That are me laugh. I may not be so polite soon I think! Thanks for encouragement 😂

  • I think I took procrastinating to the most extreme today- woke up 6.20am and considered running before it got too hot- but no, body told me to just go back to sleep... I actually went out at 8.40pm- over 14 hours later ;)

    Some days it is a battle but the main thing is you went :)

    Well done. Keep going :)

  • Thanks. I know I'd have given up after 14 hours! One day I hope to graduate....
