Week 3 run 1
After a few weeks off & full of inspiration following the Olympics I put on my running shoes & off I went. Week 3! 90 seconds & then 3 whole minutes of running, watch out Team GB here I come.
The first 90 seconds went like a dream, then came the 3 minutes, I was on fire, it can't be this easy I said to myself. Then a 3 minute break, I felt I could run another 3 minutes but I kept calm and walked briskly thinking it's just 90 seconds next. " your half way there now" Laura said & I felt good. I set off for the next 90 seconds then remembered I've been smoking 20 a day for nearly 25 years, it was the sharp pain in my chest that reminded me. All of a sudden 90 seconds rest before another 3 minute stint seemed like not nearly long enough. I thought Mo Farah, Jess Ennis, Chris Hoy, I can do this, I dug in kept going waiting for Laura to tell me I had finished. Then WTF! Slugs! F*$#ing loads of em, I found myself tip toeing the last 30 seconds trying not to squish the little bastards. My moment of triumph overshadowed when I looked up red faced, out of breath & realised I had an audience. Two little old ladies, no doubt wondering why I was dancing like a demented ballerina. I could do no more than blurt out, "SLUGS!!!!!" Which I think only made them more confused with my behaviour.
Anyway, I did it, I'll have another go on Wednesday.
