I have been following the blogs on this page since I started and they have been fab at keeping me going - this is my first contribution! Perhaps its part of feeling I am a runner - I know Laura says its a bit later (or say you other more advanced bloggers have told me) but I feel one now. I wasn't dreading this run even though I should have been as with Laura's programme I had been amazed at how I had managed all the other bits and was confident that it would be just fine. Set off - 5 minutes - if it hadn't been for Laura I would have stopped - it was a real slog and I wanted to give up lots - but I kept imagining how **** i would feel if I didn't do it - and Laura kept me going - without her I would have stopped. The last bit I began to feel sick - but I kept going - and made it - and I felt more shattered than I had ever before - it took half an hour before the elation came in -no energy before then. So really glad its an interval run next - just what i need!
Thank you Laura and all you who have been blogging so well from the start and keeping me going -
