Tonight I ran the first run of week 9. I was completely terrified before I did it. I am finding running the longer times really hard, and I think it's because I panic (I HAVE TO DO THIS FOR HALF AN HOUR?!) - five minutes in, I'm already gasping for breath. But I told myself it was a mental thing and that I wasn't actually dying. I kept going, even though I felt like I was running in slow motion much of the time (being watched by bemused people on benches, and dog walkers with miniature Hounds of the Baskerville). I was rewarded with an amazing sense of achievement, but also an enormous and painful blood blister, so am feeling a bit low now. But I am still happy I did it, and want to say thank you to everyone who contributes to the forum - it's such a positive place to get advice and support from. I can't believe it: two runs to graduation
