Hi - I'm a totally new runner, always thought this is not for me. However, my friend up north has totally inspired me so i thought why not. I have been reading a few posts on here beforehand to see what to expect etc.
I went out in the snow and wind yesterday with the kids in tow and completed run 1 - it was not too tough at all, I do quite a lot of aerobics so cardio wise i was fine but could feel it in my legs in the evening.
I got up at 6 am and went out in the snow again for run 2 this morning - legs are feeling it now!
I know i need to incorporate my rest days - and the only reason i have not yet is because the weekend weather messed up my schedule - i am now on track.
Ultimately i am so very proud of myself for getting out there and giving it a try. Looking forward to run 3 on Wednesday
Any tips on enhancing the cool down at the end and getting some stretches in there welcomed.
