I think one of the things that has suprised me most about the programme - and I don't think I am alone at all - is that I look forward to going out. I look forward to the challenge. I look forward to (some of) the music, I look forward to Laura's dulcet tones telling me how well I have done and I look forward to that feeling after you've been for a run!
I also want to thank everyone for their posts on here - because it makes me realise that I am not alone in this and that sometimes it isn't so easy, and that sometimes things ache and that I am not that slow and lots of other people are in the same boat! So thanks folks!!
Yesterday it poured with rain in the morning - so any idea of an early morning run went out of the window as I was tired and the rain didn't enthuse me at all. I told myself I would go out after work - and I actually did! It had been a lovely afternoon - but as time came for my Dusk run - the sun vanished and the wind picked up. I had a route all planned out pre-measured to stretch me a bit) - and so I just kept going! I went the furthest I have been and I went the fastest and then at the end (I am week 6 run 3) Laura pronounced me "a runner" yay! Feeling pleased and encouraged and not too broken.
