I just registered on the park run website. I am not ready for it at all but I have printed out my barcodes and I am going to carry one with me every time I go for a run to encourage me on.
I am currently on week 7 Run 3 finding 25 minutes very tough. Pacing is an issue but mentally I am not always as positive as I could be i.e. I start out on my run thinking I will not be able to do it.
I had a terrible run this morning. I stopped after ten minutes and was walking when I saw a family member out running towards me on the path. We said a quick hello and she asked if I was out for a walk as she doesnt know I am running. I said yes, but it has made me feel rubbish all morning. Since then I have given myself a good talking to and this is why I just registered for the Park Run, I am setting myself a goal and I am not going to stop until I reach that goal. Graduation still seems an impossible dream at this point, but I am not giving up and I am promising myself I will do a Park Run one day.
Sorry for venting but I feel a bit better now I have written this post!!!
