I've been out of shape since having my daughters, the youngest is nearly 18mths, and finally I've got my head, body and life organised enough to start this program. I run (rather slow jog actually) in the evenings when they are in bed, and find the quietest route through the village so I don't meet too many people.
Have nearly finished week 2, last run tonight and I am surprised at how much I am looking forward to going out. It is always hard work, and cuts into the time usually spent with my husband but I get a real sense of achievement from doing this. My body aches with all the muscle growing (hopefully) but a nice cold bath at the end really helps.
This week I have found that I zone out more and actually find myself thinking about other things (wildlife/whats growing/sometimes blissfully nothing at all) rather than thinking how achey or puffed out I am. Tonight though I will have to concentrate on not slipping in the mud.
