Run 2 Wk 2 was something I was looking forward to. I felt fine and thought it would go as easy as the previous run. But just into the first 90 second run I felt a really painful knot in my calf. I knew this run wasn't going to be pleasant but as I went on I discovered something. The first run of the set was bad and the second wasn't much better. But then it lightened and so did my mood. I'm not that confident and I run on the beach at low tide with my King Charles (who is doing better than me in her training). I try and avoid other people but today I told myself to keep going and not turn around and run the opposite way if it meant passing a group of young ones. No one seemed to notice me. Another lesson learnt - I blend into the landscape and no one seems to see a struggling older women hobbling along wet sand. So today I discovered that within a set, some runs will be better than others and not to group it all as bad. Then I learnt that if I push myself to go past uncomfortable situations, little by little I gain confidence. Yea!!
