I'm nervous, I had a bad run with calf pain and didn't complete R2 first time, but i had a rest day and completed run 2 on Thursday, I'm a day late doing Run 3 and, yes, to be honest I've put it off because I'm a bit scared of calf pain and not being able to run for 20mins.
I've been running on the treadmill until Tuesday and I really enjoyed my first outside run so as the weather is superb, I'm going to run outside again. The problem being there are no run routes here, I ran quite a fair distance in 8 mins the other day and had to pause to cross the busy road. :/
I am starting a slimmimg club on Tuesday so at last I can eat healthily (I 'treat' myself after exercise :() and in moderation whilst exercising, I haven't done that since I was in my 20's
Anyway, wish me luck and I'll report back later on.
I couldn't do it
I just felt so 'heavy' and breathless, I didn't even make 5 minutes without stopping,
I'm going back to W5R1 on Tuesday - but i'm going to swim on rest days.
I'm so disappointed with myself, feel such a failure.
I could cry.
I've felt so much better about myself lately even though I've not lost weight but today I certainly felt my 15.7st pounding the pavement.
I won't give up though, I've read on here that people have 'bad runs' I suppose this is my first bad run.
Anyway, swimming at 8.15am tomorrow, in prep for Tuesday's W5R1.
Thanks for the support, I really love this site xx
