I normally run after work, but I'm going away for a few days so my only chance for a run today was to get up a half hour earlier. And I did it! This running malarky is really addictive! Normally nothing rouses me before 7 am.
I have also discovered that I derive great satisfaction from ticking off my runs - I have a chart on the fridge (very sad I know) and I just love the feeling of coming in after a run and physically ticking it off. Very rewarding indeed.
Now, I'm away until Sunday, so planned to take a short break from running. But just before I left the house this morning, I couldn't leave my trainers at home alone ... so I've packed them! No need to miss a run just because I'm on a trip.
I even have a chart for Bridge to 10k on the other side of the sheet! Now that's ambitious!
All this makes me feel very positive and in control. I'm just so thankful to the NHS for putting the podcasts on here for free, and to all the community here for the support and advice along the way.
