After feeling smug about myself on Saturday morning following my run with my friend (which was accomplished after a night of drinking/clubbing/and about 5 hours sleep...) I was feeling quite reassured about this whole running lark. I'd managed 25 minutes at a fairly decent pace and was feeling relaxed about the upcoming 5k race I'm signed up for. Sadly today was a real struggle. First, my ipod seems to have wiped my podcasts - not quite sure why... Secondly, I ran after work rather than in the morning and I was exhausted. Thirdly I really haven't been looking after myself and there was too much partying and not enough healthy food over the last few days. So I ran incredibly slowly and felt like every step was a challenge. I managed the 25 minutes (W7R1) but it was hard. I am really hoping that my next run gives me more of a buzz and some confidence to see this through!
