Ok, so I started week 2 today and I must say I wasn't in the best frame of mind and was more than a little reluctant to actually get out the door and start it, but as I hadn't anything else to actually do I forced myself into my shorts and trainers, grabbed my iPod shuffle & earphones, locked the front door behind myself and started walking...
Once I started the podcast and heard Laura's voice I perked up a little. I made sure that when I finished the warm up walk I didn't go off running too fast and made an effort to keep it nice and slow.
I decided to take my usual route (off my housing estate and onto a small industrial estate, round the one large block and back again) and although my panting at the end of each run didn't seem to last as long as when I was doing week 1, I did start to feel as though my lower legs had huge weights attached to them and a slight soreness in my right knee. I guess these are all just usual signs that my body is getting to grips with this new sensation. I do hope so!
Anyway, I'm pleased I actually managed to get out the door and start off week 2 of the programme and will rest tomorrow (what else, it's Sunday! lol) and hopefully do my 2nd run of week 2 on Monday.
