To anyone out there wondering if they should persevere with running I would say - YES!! YES!!
I don’t often post but today I want to tell the whole world that I’ve run 🏃♀️ my furthest. I ran for 40 minutes and covered over 5k!!
I’ve had many days/runs when I feel like I am definitely not a runner. I finished the c25k programme back in May but after 3 runs of 30 minutes (back in May) I could never get back to 30 mins non stop. For quite a long time the not being able to run non stop again for 30 minutes got inside my head and so I was on the back foot mentally before I’d even set out for a run. I dugged deep and plugged away. For some time I reconciled myself with exercise how ever it was happening was good 👍 and more recently decided I’m probably a run/Walker type of running 🏃♀️ and again, I’m ok with that - hence today’s run was 5 x 8 minute run segments with some walking i between each run session.
Today’s run has lifted my mood and confidence in running 🏃♀️ x
