I've noticed something slightly weird in the last few days. When I go out for my runs (for runs read jogs), clad in my delightful new Lycra capris, running shoes, (still run in scruffy t-shirts, haven't got myself a special one yet), I feel like I'm not exactly a runner but a person who can run (on occasion, in very specific circumstances, i.e. not up hills. not fast, etc.). When I'm not all set up to run, I feel like the same old, chubby, feeble, can't-run me that I was at the beginning of week 1! Is that strange, or what? Yesterday, wearing a long skirt and sneakers, I decided I'd just jog up the snicket home, which is a gradual incline... by half way up I was out of breath and had achey legs and was glad to turn off to go to the Co-Op! What's that all about, then, when I'm on Week 8 and did a 30 minute run on Sunday (in my running kit, of course!)??
Ah, well, c'est la vie! W8R2 tomorrow will hopefully make me feel more like a 'real' runner!
