Finished Week 1 -side effects

Actually enjoyed today's run. I'm nearly 50 and that's not happened before. Long walk home cos I forgot to turn round at the half way point but that was good too.

The side effect that I wasn't expecting is that my mood is more stable. I thought I'd get a high and a crash as I have with exercise before but I feel steadier and more resilient. Looking forward to next week's runs.

Celebrated with a banana and peanut butter smoothie, mmmm.
