Despite the torrential rain this morning, I have had my best run to date
Wk6r2 and I felt as if I was a "proper" runner. From the first step my run felt right and I increased speed slightly. Those 10 mins flew by and I was really enjoying myself
On the 3 min walk I did wonder if I'd pushed myself too far and I also realised that the route I had taken now involved 3 big hills. I thought I had 2 options- one to reverse my route to avoid hills thus ending on a high or option 2 to try it and if I can't do it then to turn around. I decided to give them a go. Dug really deep and managed it - more like a weird tippy toey thing I had going up the mountains ,sorry hills, but I did it!! I must have looked as if I was dancing in the rain- I certainly was singing by the time the last 10 mins were up!!
I can honestly say that 6 weeks ago I would never have dreamt I would be thinking things like this. I would have been out of puff walking those hills. Anyone who is starting out on this programme I promise you it DOES work. It makes you belive in yourself and your body's ability. Just follow the weeks and before you know it you will be on an endorphin high too
