Well thats it, its official....
IM A RUNNER
Yes, I can now mock myself for all the times I've driven past people running along the road and called them nutters. I am now one of those nutters!!
Didnt plan on running today as I had a rubbish nights sleep last night, and felt really sore and achy from yoga and running on wednesday. However at half 4 I thought 'Hmm I feel pretty good now, just another hour or so to make sure lunch has gone down completely and I'll have a bash at that run3'.
I didn't expect to get all the way first time (as I had to have a second attempt at wk5 r3). But I just managed to find my pace, my breathing, everything just clicked!
I couldn't believe it when Laura said I only had 60seconds left as I felt so good! No beating myself up to get to the last bit, no dragging my arse around limping towards the finish... I actually went 'You what?!?!' when Laura said it was the last minute as I was so shocked, and shocked a few people outside their house and had to apologise for terrifying them! (see, nutter).
I'm now home, and still in shock. If ever there is a perfect run, that was it.
I ran for a whole 25 mins for the first time ever, it felt comfortable and good and at no point did I want to die to make it stop. I could have probably gone for another 5 mins if I really wanted to I think.
Wow. A huge milestone ticked now. I'm a runner
So now there is nothing stopping me from signing up to Sports Relief for the 3miler and being a really real runner
