So, I've now ran for a total of 16 minutes in one session (x3) and I'm amazed at myself! I am loving my new 'hobby' so much, I just wish I'd done it years ago.
Run 1 - Was very nervous to do this run as I've never, in my entire life, run for 5 minutes in one go. So I was really pleased when I did today's run and didn't find it too difficult at all. Am beginning to believe I can do this now and can't believe that only a few weeks ago I could only just run for 1 minute The only problem and it's not really a problem, is that afterwards, for at least a couple of hours I look like a tomato!!
Run 2 - A good run but I was very tired, I seem to be tired when I do my second run of the week, I put that down to it being on a Wednesday, which is the day after my weigh in when I allow myself a treat and it definitely shows the morning after in my physical tiredness. But I did it, didn't feel bad at all and again very happy with how I'm doing.
Run 3 - another good run, as I run on the treadmill I usually keep an eye on the time, but this time I just waited for Laura to tell me how long I'd got and it was better than watching the clock! Felt much better than run 2 as I wasn't tired at all. Ran in my new Race for Life tshirt to inspire me as I've registered for July and I even went on the cross trainer afterwards. Really looking forward to week 5 next week strangely enough.
I think this community of fellow C25Kers is fantastic. I read every post and think we are all doing brilliantly, whatever level we're at.
So I just want to say thank you to each and every one of you for helping, inspiring and motivating me. Here's to us!
