Just completed my run and I really surprised myself. I started out with a headache and despite stretching before hand, my calves ached. The worst bit I felt was the first 3 minute run. The 5 minute one I kept wondering what to focus on so I didn’t think about the time. Before I knew it Laura had said “4 minutes up” and I was like, wow and I’m not in pain and I can still breathe
I think I had found some kind of rhythm by the last run that I felt like I could keep running (but didn’t)
Still despite all this, I had a sneak peak from the treadmill at the mirror and the first thought that crossed my mind was “you’re not running, you’re walking!” however despite appearances I know I was, my heart rate and calves are proof of exertion!
I’m still somewhat disbelieving that I did it. Also I’m realising the treadmill is mind numbing on the longer runs. I’ll go outside for the next one I think
