This has been my hardest week. Last night completed run 3 - first 5 mins thought about just relaxing and getting into a nice rhythm Then Laura says you have completed 5 mins 'is that all!!' - carried on at about 12 mins in I started to get a very mild stitch so tried to do the deep breathing but am I the only one that can't breath in through their nose and push their tummy out. Laura then tells me I am half way through, I feel some relief. The next 5 mins I feel quite comfortable but I have no idea how long to the end. Laura tells me I have 5 minutes to go - OMG I am exhausted - I need to go to the local shop and pick up some cat food and I am almost there but I can't give up now. Cross the road to the local recreation ground and decide to do a few laps of that, it was a lot harder running on grass, I was tired and I was desperate to stop but I was so so near. Decided to head back to the pavement it was a toss up whether Laura was going to say I had finished or the shop would beckon. Laura won but no elation from me just pure relief - didn't even hear her say I was now a proper runner or whatever she says.
Week 7 here we come!!
