im still running , i did 3 x 30 min runs last week and on friday i couldnt wait for the 30 mins to be finished , i know i can do less if i want to but am kinda anal about things so like to get things just so !!!
today i got on treadmill to do a 30 minute run , the first 12 mins were agonising felt like i had gremlins wrapped round my calfs squeezing them , so i mentally checked off how each bit of my body felt and decided i was carrying on as i had no limbs hanging off ! seemed to outrun the calf monsters at 13 mins in and thouroughly enjoyed my run , got to 24 mins and my "jam " came on , a tunnnnnnnne call Breathtaking , its very rave musicy and it really gets me pumped , i so needed it right then but to my surprised i kept running even after that song had finished , in the end i ran 40 minutes and i HAD to stop myself because i didnt want to cause any injuries as i know that you are only supposed to move up a few minutes at a time , but i was SMASHING it and felt bl@@dy amazing and i didnt want to stop , im sure i had another 30 mins in me ive NEVER felt so powerful , lungs working heart pumping legs moving everything just felt right , no im not showing off , im just so so proud of myself i could cry , im middle aged , larger than i should be , unfit , etc etc and i did it every run has been hard , every run has been a struggle in the first 10 mins but please stick with it cos suddnly it happens and you know why you are doing it , sorry for waffling , im just stupid proud and teary
probs have a right mare on wednesdays run !!!!
happy running everyone
