I’d braced myself for a stormy run tonight, but actually by the time I went out, it was dry and not windy! Hooray! DD2 didn’t come, but I didn’t let that stop me - she claims she’s giving me a chance to catch up with her, since she can already fun far longer than I can! 😂
Even though I didn’t have my buddy with me, I got a string of encouraging texts as I was doing the third run segment, so that was perfect timing to spur me on. The last 3-min run was the toughest as my legs were feeling it, but I had a couple of mantras going round my head:
‘This girl (sorry, middle-aged woman!) can!’ And ‘She Believed she could, so she did’.
And you know what? It turned out I can. And I did! 😊 The cooldown walk at the end was he briskest I’ve managed in a Very long time, and my legs felt as though they could have run and run! (No, I didn’t put them to the test!). So a great start to week 3.
