So I completed my wk8r1 tonight and I decided to run on the main road near where I live as I have avoided main roads up to now as I was paranoid about being a big bloke jogging along however tonight I ran past three other runners and all gave me a nod and a smile. Seems daft but it felt like it was unofficial approval from them. Doesn’t this sound daft? Up to now I felt that I’m just a want to be runner however I do feel that albeit running slow (I only cover 2.5miles in 35 minutes ) I am running three times a week. Daft but feels good.
I got the “nod and smile” approval!: So I... - Couch to 5K
I smile and wave at everyone so they have little choice but to acknowledge! 😂 Maybe someone has gone home thinking they have my “approval”? It’s a weird thought but kinda nice - if they see us running past them why would they think of us as anything other than a runner ?(even if we are walking when we get round the next bend!)
Let’s fake it til we make it!
