So at the end of week 6 I was called a runner. I was a little apprehensive about his run because of the euphoria of Sunday I had to psych myself up to do that same run again. But today there were no obstacles, I hit the mini roundabout and a white van slowed down and let me cross so I didn't have to stop, and then just after I had a nod from a running guy who was going in the opposite direction. It was like a physical acknowledgment that I am in fact now a runner 🏃!! I also crossed paths with a lovely old lady and her little dog and she gave me a lovely smile. I don't know if that's because it was the start of the uphill and she knew what was coming, or because my face shade matched both my top and hat. #pink 😝
But run 1 went by without a hitch. My average heart rate was 11bpm lower than Sunday's exact same run and the pace was better too. I have said before that I'm a stats geek. But that's because my stats are telling me the same as I'm feeling. That I'm getting fitter. My resting heartbeat has gone from 67bpm down to 59pm in the last month too. Love love love Couch to 5k!!!
Today was a lunchtime run as I'm working from home due to child issues over night. Nightmares from the eldest and teething from the youngest. So was a warm 21 degrees too. Before and after picture for a laugh.
