Just got back from my final run of week 6 - Laura says I'm a runner, but I've felt like a runner from about week 3, why else would I be getting up to run at 7AM! when I didn't used to be a morning person, but hey it now official, so
Wasn't going to blog this run but I enjoyed it so much. (where have you put the old Phil, enjoy exercise!)
Got a day off, so had a little lie in and went out about 8.30, struggled to find the right pace in the first 5 mins, but once I settled in I loved the pace and a light breeze helped. Don't know about anyone else, but I love running the same route (for now), because as I run I think, I remember when I used to walk this bit, how can I have ran that far now, when only 6 weeks ago!!!
And the half way point was further than I've ever got (woohoo new scenery) new distance PB!
When I finished I couldn't stop smiling for no reason, well other than I'd run for 25 mins.
So just mapped the run on a map app to see how far it was and it was 4k (and 40 metres) in 25mins, so chuffed!!!
If you're in the first few weeks of this or thinking of doing it....keep it up / do it, I'm the fat kid at the back at school, 3 stone over weight and hadn't done any proper exercise for 24 year! I'd tried things but they never stuck, until NOW....
