Not sure what to write about todays run. Words that could have described it was humiliating, embarassing, but I choose to use hard working and determined. I arrived earlier thatn normal at the park and school children had just left school. On one occasion a group of girls pointed and laughed as I approached and they giggled "look at him" and thenlater in the run a couple of boys on bikes rode along side me then said " keep up fatty" - Kids can be so cruel. To be honest I felt saddened but more for them than me. I am out here doing what I enjoy and makes me happy and I am not going to let any snotty kids take that away from me. About my run - I think i managed to slow the pace today as I didnt feel that major slump in speed. I was looking forward to seeing my KM splits but runkeeper recorded the 25 min run but only had me doing 2.5 km and I know I did at least 4km. Although I was tired I had a minutes rest and decided to finish of the 5km route and i did so just under 6 mins later (about 1/2km) I can and will complete 5km. My big goal is to do a half marathon next year but I want to enjoy these 5km runs. Onwards to week 8. Has it really been that long only feels like a few weeks ago that i was running for a minute.
Keep on going every one!!!
