Nearly didn’t go today as back did not feel good, my own fault, over did it with a core exercise yesterday. But I thought well just give it a go, you can always walk.
Really busy day with over 200 runners - got caught in a rush at the beginning and going too fast but settled and tracked a runner I had followed last week.
You soon get to recognise the people who run at a similar pace. Tracked him and then a girl with plaits. Chatted and turned out she was C25K runner on her second PRun. She ran past me near the end shouting encouragement all the way to the finish where we both agreed we felt sick 😅. As always the feeling passed and felt euphoric that I’d been able to push myself and didn’t chicken out.
The body is an amazing thing and the only thing holding it back is your mind!
