Well this morning after a rollercoaster week I completed my third run of week 7 and it was definitely my best to date. Due to phone call I ended up having a longer warm up walk and so maybe that’s the secret for me from now on..
The rollercoaster was down to my dad being taken into hospital with a bleed on the brain and having to have an operation Friday to relieve the pressure which was successful 🙏🏻 But Friday morning at 5am I was out doing run 2 and must admit did half of it crying but pushed through and today almost felt like a celebration that he is okay.
I signed up for half marathon in October to achieve something before a big birthday next year but I haven’t told my parents or friends yet, it’s just my husband who knows who is also my training rock and keeps me plodding along. Just wondering have others confided in family and friends or not? Part of me wants to tell my dad now but other part of me still thinks no wait a few months incase I don’t do it for some reason and I end up letting him down then as well as myself. As you can probably guess by now I am such a dad’s girl but he truly is my hero.
Sorry for the long post but found this community so uplifting and so helpful and it’s got me to wait for it... week 8!!!! cue cheesy smile 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊 😊
