Well, the moment I have been looking forward to all week arrived and I left my house set for the "Greenway" a converted railway line now used by many locally for dog walks etc. oh and of course running.
Things were going smoothly and Laura told me I was half way there at 12.5 minutes, then disaster...my right headphone popped out of my ear in several pieces some of which had completely disappeared. This was closely followed by me accidentally and inadvertantly hitting a button on my phone with my bum cheek which managed to start the podcast again !!! STRESSED !! OMG what to do??
In a split second I decided not to stop as I had been looking foward to the 25 minute run and would not feel I had completed it should I stop...so.... regardless I carried on with one earpiece and Laura telling me to walk for 5 minutes before I run 25 from my newly started podcast....Deep breaths and calming down, I thought, because I just turned around (half way), all I had to do is run to the place I started from and I would have done it.
I did this and didn't stop so I guess I did the full 25 mimutes and was rewarded after I fastforwarded to the end of the podcast by Laura telling me I was an official runner. This filled me with a great sense of JOY not experienced since I was a child and after not running before am now... well a runner.
Looking forward to week 7 with my new fathers day headphones hopefully !!
