Well I did it-the dreaded 3 minutes is behind me! I was gasping for breath on the 2nd 3 minutes but I just paced myself and timed my breaths. I didn't use the podcast for the run because my hubby decided he was coming with me but he did all the timing for me (which is probably why the 2nd 3 minutes felt more like 5!!!) I also did the run outside for the first time which meant when i was gasping for breath I swallowed a fly!!! However it was lovely and i felt invigorated-much better than going to the gym when there's a man with hygiene issues next to you!
Here's to my dreaded second run (see previous posts) but I have no doubt I will conquer it now.
If anyone has read this ramble then thank you. I owe this site and my fellow bloggers a lot.
Good luck and happy running to you all.
