So this is my first blog post. I've really enjoyed reading everyones blogs but didnt think id end up sharing but i've got to the point in the programme where i need a little encourgament/ community spirit. A little bit about me: I am 25, female, living in Brighton and i am on a bit of a self improvement mission. This is not just exercise/weigth related but for everything. When i started working after university that became my life and it made for a rather good little rutt. I wanted to get back to being enthusiastic and bouncy by getting involved in different things and feeling like there was more to my life than being an office monkey and so i have. I joined a diving club, i sorted some volunteering and i started eating better so logically getting some exercise was the next step. The problem is I HATE RUNNING. I hate running/ sweating/ people seeing me run or sweat...but a friend recommended Laura and i was feeling daring so here i am.
So far it has all been going well. The programme really is great and i cant believe how far ive already come. At the beginning of the week i think "really, am i going to be able to do this?" and of course Laura knows best because i can and i do.
Yesterday was a little trickier though. Week 5, run 2 and it is the first run i didn't finish. I did the first 8 minutes and was actually amazed when she said it was time to walk already but the second run i only made it to 6 and a half minutes and walked home feeling rather down in the dumps. Has anyone else struggled on this run? "My toe hurt", is so far the only excuse i can come up with and for that i blame my akwadly shaped feet but i think it is more to do with my fitness level.
So tomorrow i will re do the run and hope i make it to the finish mark this time. Has anyone else found this point hard? Id love to hear from you.
Good luck to everyone
