Hi all, I haven’t been able to post in a bit so quick update post.
I am one run away from finishing week 7 💪💪 It is requiring a little more effort to leave the warmth to go for runs as we head into winter. I treated myself to a new running jacket which I am loving! I also dug out my hat and gloves.
W7R1: It was fine. Go me!! Just found a steady slow pace that worked for me and kept going. I am finding music isn’t enough to distract me for the longer runs so I finally tried listening to podcasts. They have been a great distraction. There was an annoying boy who thought it was funny to mockingly imitate my jogging as I went by once which did make me a little self conscious for a few seconds. Then I realised I am running for 25 minutes and getting fitter, what’s he doing?
W7R2: This was also a pretty decent run. I might even say it was fun until the last 5 minutes. Also, no annoying boy. 😃 I am trying to figure out a balance between wearing enough as to not freeze before the run but also make sure I don’t get too warm during the run. I had to take off my hat and gloves mid run. Somehow my uncoordinated self managed to keep running whilst I took them off and stuffed them in my pockets.
It is amazing that I’m running 25 minutes in one go and it feels kinda ‘normal’!
