I have started again at the beginning, now that my knees have calmed down. I have been out in the early mornings, before breakfast and I have found it so much better!
Today on my run, I met a whole gang of enthusiastically friendly dogs, who jumped on me and wanted to follow me. I slowed to a walk for a few seconds while the owners called them off and then got back to running. The 60 seconds seemed to be lasting a very long time! Then Laura announced that it was time for the next run and I realised that I had run through the walk, as I had not heard Laura say anything when the dogs were around me! Well, I thought I had better keep running for another minute otherwise I would be out of sync! I was a bit more out of puff afterwards, but not too bad and I felt rather daftly pleased with myself!
I feel confident about moving on to week 2 now.
I actually ran with a different mindset this week. I decided to concentrate on positive thoughts and ignore any negatives creeping in and it was really enjoyable. I took a leaf from Oldfloss' book and composed a description of the lovely scenery around me, in my head and it passes the time quickly.
