Hello lovely running folks!
This is my *second* attempt at writing this. I did my first attempt on the app, and it ate it somehow, so I had a cuppa and tried again
Week 4 Run 3 - well so far because of the way my schedule is, I end up doing Run 3 on a Tuesday after work, and to be honest, I can feel that I've been at work all day. I love the feeling of running, creating distance from the work stresses, but I can't deny it's a little more difficult as I'm starting out tired. I'm thinking I may need to alter my routine for Week 5 run 3!!
So today - started hard, but got easier. I felt like giving up towards the end of the the first 3 minute run, but there you all were, inside my head, cheering me on. Oh and Oldfloss being a very lovely parrot with her "Squawk! Slow and Steady. Slow and Steady". And trust me floss, that's a great thing, you are so encouraging, and I really appreciate it! Even if I do call you a parrot from time to time
Once I'd got over that hurdle, I simply paced myself for the 5 minute run, it was a little harder because I was tired, but I managed it and the second 2 runs seemed somehow easier. I'm a dab hand at the walking segments now, shame they will soon be disappearing!
Once again, thanks so much for the support you guys (and gals), you are amazing. Certain people seem to comment encouraging things over and over again, you know who you are, and you are appreciated.
Oh - and I made a heron friend on my warm-down walk, see pic Sorry about the quality of the pic!
Take care and run safely,
