Week 4,Run 3 - The One with the slight tech malfunction!!

Week 4 complete and doing good :) In the spirit of the Friends shows we all know and love,decided to call this one "the one with the slight tech malfunction"!!! :) Discovering that my iPod had automatically synced the first run of Week 5 to my workout,luckily had the app on my phone so no big deal in the end! But,seems I'm fitter than I thought I was as still pacy and doing the equivalent of 2.8 miles (4.5km) in 37 mins - and I really did slow it down!

Never thought I'd get this far - think my fears are more mental than physical so really got to work on that as I go forward. I am definitely my own worst enemy and the mental side of it isn't something I'll sort in the remainder of the programme. Not sure how to plan the Week 5 runs given I am away from late Tuesday until early on Thursday and will pack my running stuffs to take with me to campus on Wednesday. Did wear my Open University hoodie as I went running today as the weather isn't great here!

Well done and yes, the mental thing is important. Just keep reminding yourself why you started in the first place and how you're going to feel when you graduate!
