Well I have just finished W3 yesterday and while running the last 3 mins all I kept thinking was, how the hell will i do 5 mins, I blame myself, being a 'can't do' rather than 'can do' person !!! I also go into things with gusto and then give up far too early so only myself to blame!! The 50 year old knees felt achey last night and all i could do was focus on that, and being the pessimist that I am, was thinking that I could be damaging them, or my hips which also ache, and thinking I already need to book my hospital stay for hip and knee replacement surgery
Also, am i cheating??? so far all i have done is walk up the lane behind my house and run down it, the odd time I have run up it has only been for the 90sec stint and god it makes a difference, both in the breathing but also it feels like someone has strapped an extra 40 pounds to my legs, its not even that much of an incline !!!!!!!!!!!!
I have now got myself in to the 'lane' rut, whereby I dread trying out anywhere else, its like a comfort blanket now, and anywhere else would be a big adventure out into the unknown, with uneven pavements, kerbs, drains, grass, cars and people
Now I have re read this I am going to give myself a serious telling off and stop being such a wuss, Week 4 starts tomorrow (or maybe Tuesday )
It really helps reading the blogs as without you guys I think I would have stopped by now.
