today was my nemesis day, no way can I run for 20 mins, so might as well not bother, give up now! find something else to do, go shopping, enjoy your day off, whats the point? all these thoughts are terrible demons to me, I have them every time, is it just me?
then I thought, well go and see how long you can run, try and do 10 mins, thats longer than I have ever done. Get on the treadmill and start, just going to keep going, but no way can I run for 20. Started on the run and guess what? Laura left me again, my podcast ground to a halt, so I was all alone. I had looked at the time on the treadmill so thought, well I'll just keep at it and see. All the thoughts about trusting Laura, and pacing myself, listening to her and feeling good were gone. Was thinking about why I'm doing this, how lovely the sun was outside and looking forward to my break in a few weeks, when suddenly I realised, I had run for 20 mins! my word, can't believe it! well, if I can do it anyone can. 4 years ago this month I broke my leg, I couldn't even walk for 8 weeks, so it's done! just need to work out how to stop myself from talking myself out of it, and also try downloading the podcast onto something else, as my phone doesn't play properly! good luck to all those coming up to it!
