After run 2 on Wednesday I had convinced myself that there was no way I was going to,be able to run for 20 minutes straight. I really didn't enjoy run 2 and even ended up with a sore back, which I think is due to tense shoulders whilst running.
I spent most of today worrying about this evening and,....yes I even started formulating excuses as to why I might not make it out tonight. Anyway, I got home from work and decided to ge changed straight away and just get it over and done with, fairly ready to give up after 10 minutes or so. As so many have suggested, I took this one at a slightly slower pace. The first 7 minutes were tough. Got to 10 minutes and still going. At 15 minutes I realised I could actually do this...and that was it...20 minutes were up!
I can't quite believe how far I've come in just a few weeks! For anyone out there who thinks they can't do this...believe me you can. It's not always easy but your strength and fitness really does improve with each run.
Now looking forward to week 6.
