Rest day rebellion..wk3 between runs 1 #2 and "official" run 2 second attempt at w3r1 went really well. Not trying to run up anything that should really involve ropes and crampons made huge difference. Wasn't easy, still, but I knew as soon as I started the three minutes I could get to the end, so I just did. Was very tired when I'd done it, but was ok. All a little bit weird, but great. Kept really local to home, as it's flat and I feel a little more relaxed , which I also think helped.

So I got home on a complete high last night. Absolutely brilliant!

So today I've been des...per...ate to go out and run. Beautiful sunny day, clear fresh air... And it's blimmin rest day.. Arrrrrrgh, Laura you are soooo cruellll!

But I am being good and have been resisting the temptation. Just. But boring everyone mad with running talk ☺️

Bought a sports bra at lunchtime, and I never ever ever thought I'd buy one of those given I've never ever wanted to do any sports. (Vile PE teachers)

Never felt like I would look forward to running like I have been today, either.

This program is brilliant...or I'm in a Dr Who story featuring jogging aliens but don't know that I am.....

Anyway going to bed now, feeling a bit xmas eve-ish!
