This was a mental struggle!

I actually wasn't even goin to run ,i was.late from work after an 10hr shift and tired ,my clothes an trainers felt uncomfortable ,I my head just wasn't in it :/ , the yoga ive been doin for the last 2wks felt strained so I had a late tea an curled up on the sofa to catch up on Facebook happenings!

I came across a few c25k groups on there the other day ,I noticed tonight on my notifications id been accepted into one of them so I clicked on it to hav a look! ,im so glad I did :D , reading through all the posts on there an seein everyones journey really spurred me on to go an do my run at 1145pm I might add lol

I decided on another 15min warm-up before starting my run well I only went an completed it! I struggled and my clothes, trainers and niggles were still there but I got tro it!

So pleased I done it now ! :D

Just shows u don't know till u try! I was so close to not running tonight and I know I would have felt disappointed tomorrow if I hadn't

Time is with 15min warm up walk and 5 min cool down walk :) quite happy with that :)

Well done getting out there at that time of night!! 👏👏

Thanks so much for posting this. I’m due to do W4r2 tomorrow and found your post inspiring. (And I can go first thing in the morning rather than the middle of the night!)

That’s great! My first run was in the rain and for some reason it felt great kind of like if I did this I can do anything 😊😊😊 and then when a sunny day comes is like a blessing! I am so glad you started your journey outdoors 🤗🤗🤗
