So this morning was W6R2. I was really not looking forward to doing this run, the air was still really sticky at 6.30 this morning and I had already come back with a sweaty t-shirt from walking the dogs for 40 mins...
But I was not prepared to take an extra rest day, there was no room to talk myself out of this today. As I have found out previously, its more of a mental challenge after a while. And if I start talking myself out of it, well, it would just be a slippery slope... Besides I like the buzz, I like the fact that I am literally dripping with sweat from doing this. The sense of achievement is far greater than sitting on the sofa doing nothing.
I am now gaining a sense of pride about what I am doing for myself - I have started telling a few close friends now that I am doing this, and they are surprised but pleased for me. All have said 'I hate running, good on you' which is what my response would've been a few weeks ago if one of my friends told me they had started the C25K program!
So W6R2 is now in the bag. Even with the awful podcast music that seemed to have appeared this week
Roll on R3.
