So after a few days of feeling a bit anxious about this run, worrying this may be my first ‘failure’, I did it and it was ok! I made the mistake of wearing a watch for the first time though and looked at the time to realise I was only 7 minutes in...big mistake!! So I decided to ignore the whole time thing and just focus on where I was going, my music and the thought of how far I’d come. A dog jumped up at me and broke my stride for a bit which annoyed me but I dug deep and ploughed on. It’s so true what everyone has said, it is more psychological than anything. If you believe you can do it you will!!
Before this program I was in the Miranda school of thought...that running should only be done as a professional or as a child (!), now I’m actually thinking of calling myself a runner! Woo hoo! 😃
