I've spent all day today looking out the window, wondering if the weather would get better so that I could go for a run... It didn't. But, despite howling gales (seriously, I was almost blown off of my feet at one point), pouring rain, and cold temperatures, I did it anyway. It was the final run of week one, and I wasn't going to put it off.
I'm so glad I did - I've just FULLY completed the final run, without having to skip a run! Having started off this programme last Thursday and barely being able to run the first four runs thanks to major shin cramps, I can honestly say I'm pretty happy. The cramps were still there, but they didn't stop me, like they had just two days ago. Despite my earbuds being blown out of my ears multiple times (despite a well-secured hood...), and my glasses being so rainy I could barely see by the end, I can honestly say this was the best run yet. I have my first exam of the year tomorrow - I sincerely hope my success carries on into the exam hall!
Bring on week 2!
