Well I did R3 tonight. I was slightly apprehensive about this one as although I trust the programme, the jump from 8 mins to 20 seemed a big one. I also have 2 hills in my route, at 2 mins and about 12 mins.
Various parts started to hurt or ache but I ignored that and concentrated on my stride. When Sarah came in to say I'd done 15 mins I couldn't control the smile and when she said 2 mins left I was grinning from ear to ear. I actually didn't want to stop at 20, but I did.
Someone else posted about the "runners high" or lack of. Around 12 mins in I recalled this along with the Family Guy episode where Brian hits the high and this made me laugh too. I was on my own high knowing I was doing so well and going to do this.
I was so pleased to complete this with relative ease especially after a days work to boot.
Anyone doubting their ability, just don't. Go with the flow, concentrate on your breathing and stride and push aside any thoughts of discomfort. We've all got this 👍😁
