I set of just after work, following my new habit building.
Cue: I come back from work, change clothes to running outfit, take the dog, and off we go.
Routine: Complete another C25K run followed by a stretching session.
Reward: Feel awesome, accomplished, healthy, fit, thin, and hopefully happy.
So back to my today's run. The beginning was going good. Nice and steady pace, crazy dog running around, rolling in grass (which occurred later on to be the poo). I got it! I even conquered the strong wind and some gusts. Sometimes wind was helping me, the other time it was straight in my face trying to choke me. I won all those battles.
And then a lady with ball came in, and then another man with small dog and a ball. My do went crazy. I had to clip her back on the lead, and she was pulling me quite a lot, so I had additional upper body workout during last 3 min run. Oh, I was so praying to all new and old gods that it was over.
Bonus: I broke my record for 1 mile - 10 seconds faster I think I was trying to run faster so the time would pass faster
You know what? It was a good run! I was fighting all my possible demons and gremlins in my head. All of them trying to talk me out on my run today. You know what? Thank to all of you my friends posting your runs, your struggles, your sadness that you cannot go and run... All of you helped me fight them and finish this run. I can't thank you enough. Without you I would've quit running so long time ago and never try it again.
Week 4 - here I come!
