Yes I am pleased with myself! Got up early to feed sleepy cats and then torn so badly between getting back into the still warm, cosy bed with said cats, or getting dressed and going out. Hmm. Managed to get dressed and then looked outside to lashing rain and howling wind. Oh I can't go, what a shame. Then thought no, you can and you shall! Soaked to the skin within minutes and imagining my poor face all pink and raw from the rain. Glasses completely useless, but I did it! The first 90 second run was murder and I thought there is no way I can do three minutes, did it but not very well, second one was better. But I was so annoyed with my feeble attempt I did the whole thing again, and I guess I was warmed up by then as I did much better and was really pleased. Stayed out in the rain for 1 1/2 hours, you get to a point where you are so wet it doesn't really matter anymore and came home to a hot bath and a good book. Smug - yes, exhausted - yes but in a very warm and sleepy, contented way. I must be sick or something because I'm kind of looking forward to week 4 on Friday. I think it's the satisfaction of achieving the goal that you've set yourself. Three weeks ago I couldn't run for 60 seconds, today I ran overall (with walking in between) for 18 minutes. The support I have had on this site has totally inspired me and made me want to do better. Thanks everybody
