RUN? OR NOT TO RUN?
I thought the odds were stacked against me:
❌ Lack of sleep
❌ Manic day in the office
❌ Lack of energy
Got home. It was chucking it down ☔️. I knew I needed to complete #couchto5k Week 4 Run 3 before next week.
MASSIVE thanks to my friend for her encouragement and the virtual kick up the ass that I needed. 😝
Positives taken from this run:
✅ I ENJOYED it. Even in the rain. ☔️
✅ The 1st 3min run felt really lightweight and free flowing.
✅ Pre stretching helps HUGELY
✅ I can feel the tops of my thighs getting stronger. Transferring less of the weight onto the feet and shins is really helping.
✅ Having more strength made me run extra than the prescribed last 5 min run.
✅ More physical and mental strength is really boosting the confidence.
This is the first time in the 4 weeks of #couchto5k I can actually say I ENJOYED RUNNING. There. I’ve said it. Maybe it’s the running bug, but whatever it is, please stay.
If I can do this ANYONE can.
Thanks for reading and the continued support and encouragement. I don’t think I’d half enjoy “the journey” without all my online buddies xx
