I'll be honest when I woke up this morning I wasn't sure I was going to manage my third and final run. My tummy was doing flickflacks, not sure if that was nerves or something iffy I ate last night. But after a quick walk with the dogs and some water it felt more settled so I thought I would go and give it my best shot.
It wasn't my best run by a long way. Some of it felt a bit laboured, legs were a little tired to start with and after about 18 minutes the tum decided to have another go, luckily I managed to put it out of my mind and jog on (as they say). Also the hilly bit, which doesn't normally cause much grief, felt like I was climbing Ben Nevis. But when all is said and done I did it. Finishing off with a bit of a fist pump as I went alongside the dual carriage way. Not sure when the cars going passed thought but who cares, hopefully someone had a chuckle at this mad woman with flailing arms.
As you can see from the pic it was a bit chilly and the glasses kept steaming up but at least I could see out of one side lol. Kind of getting used to that.
I would like to add that on 2nd Jan I started Day1 running and walking for 1 minute intervals. It felt like my legs would collapse and my lungs burst but I carried on and now, thanks to the plan I can run continuously for 30 minutes. This morning I covered a total of 4.5k, I'm not worried that I haven't hit the full 5k that will come soon enough. I would recommend this plan to anyone, I have never had any inclination to run before in my life. Its taken me almost 50 years to find out the thing I always hated at school I actually love ! Blimey did I just say that!?
Anyway party dress ready, Jammie Dodgers ready to be opened but have to admit have been hyper all day as a result of this mornings run.
This plan is amazing, as are all you fab people out there. Your comments and encouragement have helped no end. Sorry about War and Peace but I did say I was hyper xxxxxx
Good luck to you all at whatever stage you are at. You can do this x
