This was only actually my second complete run, tho I did most of the second run in the second week, but I joined in with my family last week so I didn't really know what to expect today.
It seemed to go fine; today I played an e-book when I was running, to try and stop myself counting seconds which I do partly so I know how soon I can stop running but partly because I can't seem to stop myself . When I did the previous runs, and when exercising in the past, I have found the mental aspect of it harder than the physical in some ways, as my mind gets screamingly bored long before my legs get tired.
My sister was listening to the podcast on an mP3 so she was telling the kids and me when we were supposed to walk and run, so, since I wasn't listening to the podcast, I put on Alice in Wonderland on my phone and listened to that when it was time to run.
I found it helped as it distracted me although I found it hard not knowing how near to the end of the 3 minutes running we were since I wasn't counting in my head, but the time definitely seemed to pass quicker and I only listened to it as a treat when I was running, not when doing the easier brisk walking.
