I did it.... I actually did it!!! I just ran 30 minutes!!
Been putting it off all day thinking the rain would ease off... it didn't ☔... so it reached 9pm and I was running out of light... had to go for it.
That was sooooo tough.... bleak, drizzly, daylight fading away 😫 15 mins in I could feel the threat of a stitch... 25 mins in, I had completely given up on trying to hit 4k and was just willing myself to please, please keep going!! (I genuinely think id have curled up in a puddle and cried if I stopped!) So I was just aiming to finish.
And then I heard only 60 seconds left and some other words of encouragement and for the first. Time ever on this programme, I felt so grateful for the those final words of support... my oh my, I needed them!! So I pushed and pushed and pushed!!!.
AND I DID IT!! 30mins annnnndddd 4.03km.... yessssss!!!! I am so pleased with myself!
I know there are 2 more runs to go but did anyone else feel like this run felt like a win in its own right?!
