Why is it with trepidation I see that week 5 / run 3 is looming, I haven't even done run 2 yet, but run 3 is firmly at the front of my mind. Are we even allowed to mention "run 3", or is it like "he who shall not be named", do we only refer to as "The Run"....
My mind is saying, 20 mins, what will happen:
- Will I fall over
- Will I pass out
- Will my feet fall off
- Will my knee injuries hinder me
- Or even will it just be a breeze and what am I worrying about
What fills me with some sense of ease, is that EVERYONE else seems to also worry about run 3. So far, other than my knee injuries, all the runs haven't been too onerous, and I've only repeated one run twice, due to a 2 week break for the right knee.
All being well, Saturday will be Run 2, and then Monday, will be "The Run", but even know I am thinking, hhmm should I do it on Wednesday, should I repeat Run 2 to get ready for it.... I'm not going to, I'm going to hit it dead on, firmly in the face and smash it, hopefully (see I can't even be overly confident on here, without the caveat of "hopefully")
One thing spurring me on, is I've signed up for a 5k, on October 1st, so a deadline is now looming, I've worked out I do have enough time to finish the whole program, and also enough time to repeat twice if need be - so I do just have to get on with it really.
Wish me luck - I'll report back on Tuesday with the news from the "The Run"
