Really hitting my stride now - the last three runs I've done with no real issues either physical or mental! I am getting faster too, which was a tad frustrating this morning as it meant that rather than timing the 30 minutes beautifully so I stopped running at the end of the trail, I had to run through town and jog on the spot waiting for traffic like a purple faced idiot. I also realised that my snazzy new running shorts don't have pockets so I had to hold my phone, and also elderly dog walkers' jaws drop at the sight of my legs, although I'm not quite sure why... and next time I'll leave it a little longer after a large Sunday breakfast before a run!
Still, I'm really pleased with myself and really exited for the final two runs. So close to graduation now and really looking forward to building up to being able to run more during the week and adding in other exercise on rest days - the difference to my mental health has been immense, and it's just so nice as a mum of young children to grab 40 minutes where I don't have to do or be anything to anybody, I can just run!
