This week was the dreaded week 5 for me and I am so glad I completed it today!
But first things first. I travel for my job from time to time and this week I was in Milan. Never before had I even thought about taking my running kit with me. But as I wrote last week, I am a runner now so it went into my bag.
Luckily enough my hotel was just next to the beautiful Sempione Park, so I went out on Tuesday and Thursday morning to have complete W5R1 & R2. That was quite a change from my usual running, not only the beauty of the park but also... it was full of other runners...
This is not something I was used to. Where I usually run, I am alone in the forest and would only meet somebody on every second run. So running among other runners was quite strange. But gladly I quickly remembered that I am really a runner myself too and didn't feel too bothered, after a while I even enjoyed that. Feeling like being part of a group.
Run 2 was really enjoyable as it perfectly fit with the distance of the main running loop of the park. Overall the best run I had so far! If you are ever in Milan, I can only recommend this park for you runs, it is really nice, both for the views and the crowd of other runners.
Then back home today, I went for run 3, perfectly timed between two rain showers. I felt really good about it and enjoyed the continuous running. After 5 minutes my mind went off thinking about totally different things only to be reminded a little later by Laura that I had been running for 15 minutes. I literally didn't see the time pass. Physically I also felt well, really had the impression that I could have gone on for 5 or even 10 minutes.
I am so pleased to see this progress, five weeks ago I would not have thought capable to run for only three minutes.
Thanks all, looking forward to week 6!
