A good run today & a very happy me :)

Having had a cold this week (that's what all the short of breath thing was earlier this week) I woke up this morning intending to go for a run. My attempt at running up a hill earlier this week did make me doubt whether I should run & I had all the excuses running through my head, "take another rest day", "you have a cold", the traffic is starting to get heavy" but I ignored all them & went out. What a run it was too - I decided to run with Day 3 of week 9 of C25K but the program paused itself & as I couldn't be bothered to stop & sort it out, I ran without it and just had my running songs on & whoo hoo - 25 mins passed before I knew it. I varied my route today, no, not the hilly route, but a different route which has inclines - I thought I'd consolidate running steeper inclines before I tackle the hill again. Anyhoo - I ran 4.426km which is the furthest that I have run & I ran a mile in 12mins 19 secs - my PB so am very pleased. Can't wait for Saturday to go out again - yep, running bug has bitten & I am addicted :D :D

  • That's great! I love the way these unintended breaks can often consolidate things while we're resting.

  • yes it does even if we think it's not. It gives our bodies chance to rest and recharge.

  • Well done Dhiny.

  • Aha! Bet you're so glad you turned out after all ๐Ÿ˜€ If you find, after having got all dressed and ready, that you really don't feel well, you can always pack up and go home. Best to give it a good go ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘

  • That's exactly what I thought misswobble - I set out with a goal of running 1 mile but felt so good after 10 mins I carried on :)

  • Well, once you are out there ๐Ÿ˜€ I set off the other week with 7k on my asics plan. I ran 27k! ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ I got carried away

  • easy to do once you're in the zone - shame to call it a day when you're on form :D

  • Oh how I long for the day I can accidentally run an extra 2k, never mind 20 of them! ;)

    But a very positive run, Dhiny - well done :)

  • It will happen, we just have to be patient ๐Ÿ˜‡
