Well, that went amazingly well given my performance in my last run. I seem to have exceeded myself tonight. Where to start?
1. Getting my gait assessed and fitted for correct shoes (ASICS Gel Nimbus 20’s one size up from my regular foot size) has eradicated all knee and hip aches whilst running.
2. I managed every run tonight including a burst of speed on the last minute.
3. Probably the most important point is that I am buzzing — I feel different, like I can lift this grey cloud of judgement and overcome my fears.
I learned from tonight’s run that yes, I was afraid I might die, but changed my psyche completely to, well if I do die, at least I died trying!
The only question I have to the community is if I should go straight into week 2 or repeat week 1? Any pros/cons? After run 2 I was like, maybe I should repeat week 1, but then tonight happened and I’m like, let’s go smash week 2.
Feels good right now!
