Ok so I probably shouldn't have run today, especially the mega step that is W5R3. In fact yesterday whilst curled up half passed out on the bathroom floor with a stomach bug, I decided that I was going to forgive myself for missing a day or two between runs (Yes this is how much this program has got under my skin!). But after continuously hydrating yesterday and waking up this morning feeling absolutely normal I decided to go for it. I must thank sfb350 and emzylou for the sterling advice on my question on this yesterday. You guys rock
Well, I only went and run the entire 20 mins!! And I felt perfectly fine throughout, with the exception of sweating between my fingers really annoying me but the strangest thing happened when Laura came on to tell me that I had just run 20 minutes... I felt like I was going to cry!? I had gone into the run not expecting anything and I wasn't particularly euphoric or relived. It was just bizarre.
I think at least I'm beginning to see just how much of a difference this running malarkey is having on my overall health. The last time I caught one of the kids stomach bugs I was out for weeks yet now 24hours later I feel like yesterday was just a dream. Or at least it has made me aware of the importance of hydration. So thank you to all you guys out there Heres to week 6!
