Going through my music on my phone this morning to find the week 6 podcasts, I rememebered how I used to be so scared of them when doing weeks 1-4! In the words of the fabulous Miss Piggy..I used to think "Moi? Moi could'nt possibly exert herself that much!!"
It was another beautiful sunny morning when I headed up the lane for my warm up walk. I have ditched the jacket and now just run barearmed (eek! I hate showing them off but common sense prevailed...I needed to stay cool at all costs! Plus a bit of sun would do my pasty winter skin some good I'm sure!
It was a with a little trepidation that I started this run as I'd read all over this forum how hard it was for others after the famous 20 minuter of last week. The first 5 minutes were hard, but I attributed it to still feeling a bit sleepy and not much fuel running through my veins.The scenery was just beautiful which was a real bonus.(I just don't think I could manage tthis programme on a treadmill...I would have nothing to do but clockwatch!) The next 8 minutes were actually ok and the last 5 were really quite pleasurable, no wonder Laura and her pals had placed a track for that last running segment with the lines "it's so easy" or words to that effect.
I'm now hoping for similar weather so I can go out and do R2 of this week on Saturday morning. As much as the land needs rain, the woodland pavements will turn into a mudbath if it does...and I'll have to go back to boring old roads
