W8r1 time yesterday, and, boy, did I feel it in the old legs. I ran in the early evening when I normally run first thing, I'd been at work all day and it was hot - the excuses just keep rolling in I have never, ever wanted to hear Laura tell me that I only had one minute to go so much in this running journey!
So, I thought I would pick myself up by seeing just how far I had run ... ha! Big mistake. I used the Nike+ mapping website and was so disappointed to see that I had 'only' covered 2.1 miles. So at this stage I am running over 13 minute miles.
Went to bed feeling very sorry for myself having completely lost sight as to just how far I have come in the last eight weeks. Logged on this morning to read through some of the blogs and the questions and everyone's support and encouragement is so inspiring to read. I'm not the fastest runner but I can also see that I am an awful lot faster than I was a few months ago. And I'm also ready to throw my running stuff into my suitcase for my upcoming hols rather than in the bin like I wanted to last night
