So..... Week 3 run 1, soooo tempted to postpone as I was aching from my walk and it was chucking it down, but a lovely message from legion inspired me to give it a go (thank you!)
My eldest joined me, at 22 she now works in a gym and has recently got herself fit, even running the Manchester 10k! I did warn her that she had to stay at my pace and to her credit and amusement she did.
Well the first 90 seconds was ok and the rain was very welcome, the first 3 minutes were pretty tough, especially when Laura told me I was halfway through it, I could have cried, I thought it was nearly time to walk, somehow I made it ( the 3 minute walk went MUCH quicker though, I think that Laura needs to work on her timing!)
Was managing then until the last 3 minute run. OMG! It was evil! My calves were exploding, I couldn't breathe, i really really wanted to stop, I don't know how I managed to keep going but I did! I only went and did it!!!!!!!! The funny thing was my 12 year old was out with us but he kept running ahead, by the time we got to the end he was trailing behind! The tortoise and the hare springs to mind!
Hope run 2 is a bit easier though!!!!!!
