Had 2 lovely rest days. Did some stretches yesterday, otherwise watched the athletics on the telly (does that count as exercise?). Set of for this morning's shuffle and for some reason had a different mindset. Instead of feeling worried about running for 25 minutes non stop, I told myself I'd already done 2 non stop runs so it wouldn't be a problem.
It was really quite strange. I set off stronger and lengthened my stride a little and it felt really good (a bit zen like)! I was still slow but I felt as if I was actually jogging now not shuffling and I didn't get any aches or pains. I was still tired at the end, but no more than on other runs. I ended up running a fair amount further but that doesn't matter. What matters is that I'm enjoying it again. Watch out snails, I'm catching you up.
