In preparation for my w9r3 and being someone who loves to shop yesterday I purchased a proper running vest so at least I’d look the part.
Then at 8:15 this morning absolutely looking like a bonafide runner in my coral running vest I set off in the sunshine along the canal.
And I managed my best run ever covering 4.8km. My running vest and me are ecstatic. I can’t quite believe I’ve done it.
When I started the program my hubby said “you’ll never do it, you’re not built for running” which made me more determined. I am on the “curvier” side but in the 9 weeks have lost 14lb but importantly I’m fitter, more toned, have dropped 2 dress sizes and really feel in control. I well and truly have my mo-jo back.
Thanks to everyone who has supported me, including my husband who despite his doubts really has cheered me on.
Along with swimming which has always been my thing running is now also my thing.
If someone like me who is “not built for running” can complete this great program then everyone can - to all those who read this post - please trust the program, stick at it and you too can become a bonafide runner (with or without a coral running vest).
