Week 7 Run 1

Completed my run 1 on Tuesday and I knew a cold was coming on.

I really enjoyed it and felt like I had achieved something.

Gutted now as I have a cold and don't feel like doing run 2. I think im going to lose all my fitness gained over 7 weeks and be back to square 1.

Im hoping to do run 2 on Saturday and get back into it.

I think I live for my running now as I look forward to the achievement even though it can be hell at times to complete.

This cold thing is very depressing.

Don't panic! You won't even start losing any fitness for a couple of weeks. But take it easy if you have a cold, it can take a lot out of you.

And I completely agree with everything else you've said - it may be hard, but so worth it!

You’ll be fine when you’re felling better, the run will wait and you’ll still be able to do it.
