I've not written anything for over a week, mainly because once I get in from work and have ran a podcast, I've cooked dinner then too knackered for anything else except sleep lol! So I've logged in for a bit of a quick update...
Last Tuesday was the start of W7R1 and I actually enjoyed it (is that possible... running and fun put together?!) The first five minutes felt tough on my legs but once I got to about the 12.5 min mark, I started to get into it, my chest didn't hurt and neither did my legs. I never thought I'd get this feeling from running! I also forgot my comfort blanket (bottle of water) that I usually run with and I was fine up until about the 20 min mark before my mouth and throat went dry.
I felt pretty much the same on Thursday (W7R2), but Saturday (W7R3) was a bit tougher. I usually run when i get home from work, around 5.30 - 6pm and Sat's run was about 9.30am. I'm thinking it was a combination of the early morning, the wind and drizzle, and the can't be arsed-ness of it all!
I started W8R1 yesterday and even though it was only an extra 3 mins, I found it quite difficult. I was quite tired - maybe it was the Monday blues - I'll blame that and the music for this run! Throughout the podcasts, I've quite enjoyed the music but found this week quite supermarket-y! I've missed familiar favourites popping up from previous weeks... although I do like 'you & julie' .... I'm blaming my pants run on the music and I'm sticking to it lol!!!
I am still rather impressed with myself though. During W7, I changed my usual route to one I started on W1 and I'm rather impressed with the distance i can run now compared to the very first week!
Roll on W8R2 tomorrow!
