A little bit behind schedule this week due to a little family emergency. However not used it as an excuse not to run. Well I did for two days as I usually do the run on a Monday, but as I have been away from home and with no running gear I think its a valid excuse.
As a lot of others I did have a bit of fear towards week and should I have feared it, Oh Yes. But did I complete it, You bet I did. No it wasnt easy but I am just so chuffed that i can now run for that length of time.
Yes I struggled over the last 5 minutes and the run became a crawl. But I largely put that down for starting too fast. I am having trouble pacing and I can often be heard muttering you are going to fast but I am finding it hard to slow down, I think thats the competitor in me, Its not that I want to go fast, I want to go further which ultimately means pushing yourself faster.l I am sure I will eventually master it as I take on board advice and tips. But I am getting there and am really loving it
Maybe I need to have a running partner as I am now convinced I wont give up so happy to make the committment.
