I just did it🌈☀️🤸♂️. 5 weeks ago I hadn’t run since I was a child. Since I started this programme I’ve had horribly sore knees needing ice and physio advice, alot of strengthening and one big fall face first onto hard pavement. 😰
I set out today rather apprehensive. But determined the it was possible. I even mixed up my route and used a podcast to pass the time. The first 5 minutes felt tough because I knew there were 15 more ahead. But once the 5 minutes was up everything fell in to place. It really is about mind as the legs were ready.
I went slowly. Anyone could overtake me. But I didn’t let it worry me. Before long 20 minutes was up. Arms went up in the air!! Brilliant. Even more so because I was sponsored for this run and raised a decent amount for a homeless charity. So result all round.
What’s next? Week 6. Wow! I would never have thought I’d do this. Off for some stretching now 🧘♂️
