After watching biggest loser finals I had a mad moment and signed up for the Race for Life in June. Something along the lines of ... if they can do it surely I can too - Whaaat??. Reality check! I am more elephant than gazelle, I can walk for miles, But me - running is not a pretty picture so I have managed to avoid it since school (and that was a lifetime ago)
This is going to be a huge personal challenge!
I love the podcasts which got me through W1R1 on Saturday without too much pain - The innocence of fresh legs
Feeling confident, I braved the frost for W1R2 this morning and oh boy! I connected with my shins and calves in a whole new way... Ouch.
Pretty much everything from the hips down feels stiff this evening. Roll on I W1R3 on Wednesday but I hope the legs loosen up a little before then!
