Still beetroot red from my run, my week 9 run 3, let me say that again week9 run3!! I cant believe that I have followed the programme over the last 10 weeks, yes it took 10 rather than 9 as I needed a few extra rest days due to knee pain. I woke up this morning and the gremlins were already ahead of me, you knee hurts, oooh look at that rain you dont want to go out in that, you really didn't sleep well last night your way too tired for this, its windy and the wind will be against you, your not going to get near that 5K so what the point etc etc. I kind of "accidentally" put my running kit of after doing the weekly shop ( a battle in itself) and thought just go. The gremlins were right it was windy and my legs did feel tired and the first 10 mins was awful but slowly I got there, the next 15 were ok but the last 5 were murder but I was not going to stop for that 5 mins and no I did nt get near the 5K running 4K in the 30 mins. Yes 30 mins running when 10 weeks ago I did not know that 0 seconds could be so long. Trust in the programme and trust in your body and it really can be done!! There are a few of us graduating today, well done to all those people and well done to any one who ventured out on a run today no matter what distance of speed you made the effort.
