I did feel a little like I had all the gear and no idea and where as normally I try to avoid people as much as possible last night I had the confidence to run up the high street and beyond not in fear of collapsing in front of a member of public.
My new trainers were very nice but it didn't make me enjoy the first 5 minutes, still always struggle with the first bit of every run. But after the initial shock the middle 8 was a steady enjoyable run and I even felt my strong enough to push a little for the last 5.
All this being said my legs especially my knees did ache when I got home but I have found that a soak in a cold bath really helps my recovery.
Really looking forward to run 2 and trying to stay positive for run 3 but i would be lying if I said it wasn't concerning me.
