After my 'disaster' of running outside last week and the knock to the confidence it gave me, I attempted my week 10 run 1 with a bit of trepidation. On I jumped back on my new friend (i.e treadmill) back in the loft and off I went. First five mins were awful, couldn't find my stride, music was getting on my nerves and it just felt uncomfortable. I dug in though and was determied to show that I had the strength and that the work I had done this far was not in vain. 38 minutes later, I finished my first ever 5k! I got to 30 mins (eventually) and felt good so kept going to see how far I could comfortably manage. The same groin pain, I've been experiencing reared it's ugly head, but I pushed on and was just so elated to finally hit the 5k mark. For all those thinking that you will never get to 30 mins plus, you will! I got off and burst into tears....who'd of thought that not only would I manage it, but to get so emotional over a run!!!!
