Week 1 Run 2 - Done!

When I woke up yesterday morning it was pouring with rain. Knowing that I was planned to do my second run I stared forlornly out of the window with my heart sinking a bit.

It's cold, it's wet, I'm tired, I've had a busy day at work, I'm hungry, I've got things to do this evening, I'm a little bit achy and to be honest, I don't want to go out for my second run. All the things that ran through my head yesterday.

I got home and sat on the couch and thought about all the things I had to do. Then I realised that I had been sat down for 15 minutes and I would have been half way through my run had I just gone straight out as soon as I got home from work.

That spurred something in me. I got changed, put my music on and walked out of the door.

The sense of achievement I felt after completing run 2 was great. I'd done it. I'd gone out even though I had convinced myself of enough reasons not to. I don't think this is going to be the last time the little voice tells me that I can't do it for one reason or another but I just have to ignore that voice and go with the one that tells me I can.

Happy face ticked at the end of the run :)

Yay well done! I had that more at start of program and now on week 5 I can’t get out of house quick enough. I think my family are wondering if a new mum has arrived 🤣. Keep it up, honestly it is worth it !

It’s hard to fight those gremlins sometimes, so well done for that!

Well done you!

I discovered that I really like running in the rain as long as my torso is reasonably dry, so I use my ancient, light breathable cycling jacket - that does the trick!😀

I don't mind proper rain. I hate the drizzly stuff that we're having at the moment though. Either rain or don't ha ha ha!!
