24 hours after the orgininaly planned run (due to "migraine-gate"!!) ,I went out just a touch before 7pm and did Run 2. Decided to up the pace a little bit to reassure myself that Run 1 wasn't just a fluke and I sailed through
Don't know about anyone else,but in between the last run of the previous week and the first run of the next,I sit and listen to the next week's podcast,just to get an idea of what to expect and visualise myself on my route,think it helps me focus and reduces the anxiety and apprehension
I also listen to a podcast I recorded for my student association (I'm an OU student and long time student volunteer - 5 and a half years now!),and remind myself just how far I've come ,for those who've read my blogs since the beginning of my C25K journey,the confidence and anxieties I've had have affected me and this is helping with building,and rebuilding the confidence levels so when I have a bad session (like the first run of last week,for example with the stich issue),I listen back to that podcast and remind myself of the good I've done and the support I've given to others,even though I might be too modest to admit it! It was a first doing a podcast and I did our first radio show too (live and loose!) so doing something like this is rebuilding the confidence even more - thought I'd post the link if it helps motivate too
Meanwhile,week 4 draws ever nearer!
