After the fun and games with my right knee, I never thought I would manage this run. I told myself that at the first sign of pain, I'd turn back and walk. I'm so glad I didn't need to!
I did stretches before, a slightly longer warmup walk than normal, and ran more slowly. The first five minutes seemed to take forever, but at the half way point despite feeling I'd gone rather slowly, I was still further on than W6R3. I turned round and jogged back, surprising a woman who was being taken for a walk by her dog. And before I knew it, Jo said I had a minute left. I upped the pace a little as she suggested, and it felt good.
So that's that, one more run done. I'm really enjoying this. I can totally see that I can do this! Who would have thought I could run for 25 minutes???
Encouragement then, I struggled to run for 1 minute at the start. 6 weeks later, what a difference. I am a runner! The app said so. And if I can, you definitely can
Bring on run 2!
