No:1 Orange and puce is not a good look!
No:2 Victoria secrets super max sports bra is incapable of holding in place my middle aged, mind of it's own boobage!
No:2 Running on empty after a really bad nights sleep is not a good idea.
No:3 I have far more resolve and determination than I ever believed.
No:4 Despite the run being rather pants I actually really enjoy it.
W6R1 - I know I probably shouldn't have run today, but I have a couple of really busy days coming up and I knew I wouldn't get time to fit it in until Thursday pm if I didn't go today, so after a particularly painful and restless sleep I was feeling really rather tired but pushed my sorry butt out of the door because the weather is truly beautiful today and I fancied a run in the sunshine for once, all my runs so far have been either in the rain or snow and in darkness.
Anyhow, did my warm up walk and then started the 5 min run, OMG was I tired, my legs forgot how to move halfway through and I nearly dropped back to walk, pushed on breathing hard and already turning a rather un fetching shade of magenta, got to the end of the 5 minute section and honestly felt like giving up, new sports bra was irritating because my boobs were making a bid for freedom at every stride and I was feeling a though I just couldn't do it. Started the 8 minute run section with a LOT of trepidation and was mostly praying that Sarah would tell me I was done when I felt like throwing in the towel again, I had lots of thoughts popping into my head of all the wise words I've read on here about slowing down, when it suddenly occurred to me this is the first run I've done without my amazing hubby at my side telling me off for going to quick, so my C25K lovelies, I listened to the inner voice and duly slowed down a bit, before I knew it the 8 minutes were up and you know, I felt kind of good
The last 5 minute section was harder still, but I learned that I CAN keep going when I desperately think I can't and I'm really rather pleased and proud of that, see, I knew there was more to this running malarky than just moving my legs.
Off now to look for another more supportive sports bra - any recommendations gratefully received - and possibly a black running top, black and puce looks ok doesn't it?
