I couldn't believe how hard the first run was. I found the whole thing tough, but I managed it and am so pleased. Back is the gasping breaths; they had disappeared after week 2, and the whole thing was hard, but I had no pain as such. When Laura says if you get a stitch, slow down, I spent some of my time wondering how many times you could slow down and still keep moving. Fortunately I didn't get a stitch as I am already quite slow. It was hard also getting my feet going, but find that there is a point in the middle of the run where there is the hint of a good rhythm. I'm really not looking forward to R2, but I know that having done it once, I can do it again. Thanks everyone for the support, for those running now and those who have run. I have looked back at some journeys, and they all give me hope
