Wow! Who would have thought I could run for 20 minutes? In week one, my lungs felt as thought they had big wet sponges lodged in them but the big wet sponges have gone now. I did have mini ones in the last 2 minutes, after the hill, but it isn't really worth stopping running in the last 2 minutes is it?
Hardest bit was definitely not thinking about running. I find it much easier to run when I think about work, friends, the dog, holidays etc. Anything but running. This was definitely a challenge today.
The other thing I really noticed today was that once I started my warm down walk, all of a sudden, happy thoughts came into my head - the flowers, the day trip on the broads tomorrow, how wonderful it would be to have my employee development review later today!!! Those endorphins certainly play havoc with the mind!
So, I'm looking forward to next week and am going to make a list of nice things to think about while running!
