I did my third week one re-run this morning and what I've found more than anything with these three runs is that my mental attitude towards them has been SO different compared to when I ran them the first time round.
When I started C25K a couple of months back, before my knee injuries halted it, I approached my runs with a "Can I do this? I'm not sure I can do this, can I?" attitude, all apprehensive and serious. But restarting the programme, I am now very "I can do this! I can!" about running and it makes *such* a difference. I look forward to every run and I even had a running dream the other night.
For me, flicking that brain switch from a worried approach to a positive one has been the best thing about restarting. That and the fact that a month of daily squats have had a real physical effect on my legs. There is actual muscle definition and at least 26.3% less thigh wobble. Hurrah!
