I went out earlier today - but the sun came out, so that wasn't too good. I tried a different route and also put on Strava. I never did feel that I got into my stride. The gremlins were busy. 'I can't do this'. 'You won't make it, so why not stop now' etc etc. I knew that If I stopped I would never start. At 12 1/2 mins I thought I'd still got too far to go. It wasn't until Laura said 5 more minutes that I thought maybe I can hang on, and I did. I'd been looking forward to hearing Laura say that I was now a runner, but I didn't feel like it, and I though I even heard a hint of doubt in Laura's voice!! I did manage a little shout of 'Yaay!' but my beetroot face came back!
