Started my Couch to 5k challenge yesterday and felt so proud of myself!
I finished work at 4:30pm drove straight home, changed into my running gear and off i went to the local park. Once i got there i realized that i may have to dust off the old football boots knocking around in the boot of my car as the field was water logged.
Stepped out onto the field and it struck me. This is it, the first time I have run in public since i can remember. Put my earphones in hit play on the podcast and off i went.
The 5 minute brisk walk seemed a breeze for the warm up (after the turn of the year I have been walking just shy of 4 mile a day). As soon as the running began it hit me, Wow how unfit was I !?, found a decent pace that i could cope with and the rest flew by.
Felt so proud when the podcast finished and between the heavy breathing and wiping the sweat from my brow i did a mini fist pump in my head!
Bring on run 2
Bring on week 9!
