W2R1 - Wasn't nearly as bad as I thought!

I took an extra rest day over the weekend, so I was a bit reluctant to start week 2. Add to that the fact that I spent the day lazing about the house, and I was not really feeling up for a run. Anyway, I knew that I couldn't hang off for another day so headed out anyway.

And it wasn't so bad! I thought that running for 90 seconds would have me on my knees by the end, but the 2 minute walks gave me enough time to get my breath back. Laura also gave advice and encouragement at the exact time that I was needing it. I don't know how she manages it!

I feel a bit guilty though, because I'm sitting munching my way through a bag of maltesers. I'll just have to try a wee bit harder next time to burn it off! I am looking forward to my next run, so it sounds like I'm beginning to catch the running bug :)

  • You're welcome! For some reason I've been concentrating more on the negative comments about each week, rather than being a bit more realistic! It's good to start the week on a high. I'm just hoping that the rest of the week runs as smoothly! I don't think Laura would have any family time haha
