Wow I didn’t quite believe it would be, but run 2 was so much easier. I was dreading it. I ache and I’m tired I’d been at work in the morning shift, I’d come home with the intention of having lunch and a cup of tea then going out for run 2 soon after. It was red hot today, I’d had a really busy day at work and finished late so once I got home I ended up chilling on the sofa and fell asleep watching Olympics, woke up about 7 o’clock at night with a stiff neck and feeling shocking. I felt so disappointed that I’d not gone for a run, I felt like I was letting everyone (and myself) down. I had my tea gave it a hour to settle and set off about 9:30 at night, I know it’s late to go but I’m on a night shift tomorrow so staying up later won’t do any harm. It was cooler and I ran on the streets rather than going to the park and it was a really pleasant run. I enjoyed it, I paced myself better was able to run all the runs. So glad I carried on. I’m not as scared as I was about continuing the course, I’m not sure it will get loads easier and I’m fairly sure I’ll still struggle at times but I feel better about it all.
