Actually...in my eye to be precise 👀 pesky countryside runs! Tried to get it out but couldn't so ended up running the whole way with said fly tagging along.
So the actual run went well. First 30 min stint. Tried to map out a 5k loop on OS maps app last night thinking foolishly I may come somewhere close. I think I did about 4k in 30 mins but forgot to start my Fitbit when I started the run section so am guestimating. But still happy with that.
Normally run after work so wasn't sure whether to eat or not before so didn't but then got side tracked and didn't go out until about 2 1/2 hours after i got up. My legs were a bit wobbly by the end and I think I needed food.
So anyway...30 mins...I did it! Yay!! The mantra of don't stop, keep running is now embedded and part of my internal dialogue, which I think is a good thing and is how I got to this point. Have always given up too easily on previous attempts at running. Those hills that nearly killed me a few weeks ago were doable (well one could still be done for attempted murder!) Might drive to a flat place for my next run and see what difference it makes.
Good luck to everyone wherever you are on this journey...don't stop...keep running! 🏃♀️🏃♂️
