Week 1 run 1...I did it!

After a low key first attempt and some great advice on how to use inhalers pre-run, I completed the wk1r1 today.

Things I have learnt so far -

- Don't drink quite a lot of wine the night before you attempt a run (not just the asthma to blame for the shaky start...)

-The treadmill was definitely easier - but I'm going to do a mix of road/treadmill to keep it interesting.

- Eating a couple of hours before seemed to put paid to the shaky leg.

-That I can do it! ....after a lifetime of puffing and wheezing through exercise this paced technique is working so far - can't wait to get onto the next one.
