Week 2, Day 2

Week 2, Day 2

OK, after finding where the exercise goblins hid my running socks and Hubby-to-Be dropped me at the park, I was ready to do my brisk 5 minute warm up. Once again amazed at how much my stamina for a 90s run has improved over a week and a half.

Yes, I had moments of 'good gods, it's got ot be only 10 seconds into it...I want to stop. I *checks phone* have 20 seconds left of this run...OK, fine" and there's still the resistance to exercise in my psyche, but as much as I don't want to do it, I hate myself more for not doing it (does that make sense) and once again, I managed to shake off the 'stay at home' goblins.

And here's me after the day's programme was over (yes, that's outdoor equipment in the background, yes I use it as part of my cool down walk)

  • Well done on beating those gremlins.

    Pysche is definitely key in this running lark.

  • Well done - don't let those gremlins stop you running! ;)

  • Very well done.. you are doing brilliantly! Ignore those pesky gremlins.. hopefully the colder weather will freeze them into silence!

  • Well done you! Sounds like you had a great one😀 I did w1 d3 today, my legs where like lead so I'm dreading w2 but .... I will do it👍 You are smashing this! Keep going, imagine walking down the aisle and kick those pesky gremlins to the kerb😀
