I was looking forward to my first run of week 3. But that 3 minute duration really got me.
It was warm, my music wasn't working and my belly fat felt really heavy! Hanging over the waistband of my leggings, it didn't make me feel comfortable stripping off my baggy jumper to reveal my running vest, as it kept riding up over my tummy.
I was thinking how it would feel to run 10kg lighter. And all sorts of bigger picture things leaped into my head. I had to tell myself, just stop with the 'if only' mentality and think about just getting through the next minute. Run gently and be gentle on yourself.
I finished feeling not great. But is was a finish. Another run done and one more run closer to my goal.
