It’s a foggy dull misty morning out, definitely feels & smells like autumn now and I’m about to embark on my w1r2 and I’m feeling slightly terrified & somewhat excited. I’m determined to complete the programme as I’ve never ever been a runner. I did try it a few yrs ago but a back and knee injury put it all to a quick end (after 3 half hearted attempts at jogging)
But this time is different, for the last 2 months I’ve been weight training with a personal trainer, strengthening my core and walking 4/5 miles every day on top of very active job so hopefully this time round I have the tools and knowledge to keep my bones safe from injury with warming up/cooling down and of course stretching but crucially listening to my body.
My small chihuahua is doing this with me also and has really surprised me with how much ground she can cover. I’ve built up her mileage too and she can now easily walk 4 miles in 1 go. She did join me on my 1st run and actually seemed to love it so here’s hoping my furry friend can continue this programme with me. Now if only I can get her to get up 😂
