Week Two Run Three

I'm going to write this while my boyfriend's in the shower - I've just got back from a run and I desperately need one! I must smell awful!

Well, the last run of week two was quite tough but I still managed it. Around the halfway point it starts getting a bit easier and I feel like I can manage the 90 seconds with ease. I'm a bit apprehensive about week three but looking forward to it at the same time.

I think the reason that this run was tough was because I had some alcohol last night - I always feel it when I run the next day!

At the moment, I am absolutely amazed that it hasn't rained for any of my runs. I've been very lucky. The path that I run along is kind of set back from the road - it's a popular path with runners and cyclists so you have to be careful about people zooming up behind you. There are lots of dog walkers around too, which is nice because I love dogs. Also, runners are very friendly folk - lots of smiles and supportive nods. I think maybe it's because I'm scarlet in the face with sweat pouring off me! Quite an obvious beginner.

It's helpful to write these posts because I love talking about it so much. My boyfriend doesn't mind me raving about it - when I walked in just now he said I looked healthy and glowing which is sweet. I do feel a lot better and I'm sleeping a lot better too - I used to have an awful sleeping pattern. It's amazing how much I'm looking forward to each run. I can practically spring out of bed and straight out the door.

Well, until next time...

Aaaahhh you have been well and truely bitten by the bug. Well done on your runs and keep up the good work. Sorry to say but I'm 9 weeks down the line and still very pink / red in the face by the middle of a run and it doesn't get any better either. :D


I graduated and still I'm red faced! :D

Lovely to hear other runners with the bug ;)
