Couch to 5K

W8R2. Not so bad! Try not to reward myself too much

Just back and managed it ok. I could have quite easily have stopped but didn't need to if you know what I mean. I think its why I feel so elated when I finish, the fact that it is mind over matter, it certainly is for me anyway. The satisfaction in taking control over what im doing and I'm doing it for me and only me. I'm sure many of you know the feeling that many of the things you do are for other people ( not in a bad way, I enjoy looking after the family). I dont have to be anywhere or do anything other than keep my feet moving for however long Laura tells me. The running is doing my confidence the world of good, so I'm sitting here feeling really chuffed.

Ran a little bit further today 4.46k in 28 mins. Will try and keep the treats to a minimum

Well done ! I agree there is a lot of mental determination involved sometimes - I think that's a really good thing, I've noticed it helping me elsewhere too. Treats are nice but the satisfaction of a good run can be a treat in itself ! :-)


Absolutely love this blog.

Exactly right :)
