Well tonight was the big night for Wk2 run1 and yes Ive done it but omg I feel like Im dying :-/

Before the big day I have tried to prepare myself by listening to Laura and the podcast whilst travelling to work on the bus. I think the main thing tonight is that I had tea with the kids at 1645 and that has not agreed with me and running. Should have known better as I can never eat before any exercise or else I throw up and on the last run I really felt ill. i did the run at 2015 so thought the tea would have settled but no. Also I nearly collided with another runner because he went to run my side but hey ho these things are sent to try us.Despite all this I persevered to the end and Im proud I completed it. Just had a lovely long soak and now Im going to chill :-)

p.s think this running is getting to me because Im now looking at running jackets, reflectors and trainers

  • It is really addictive isn't it? My husband is sure I'm only doing this for the shopping opportunities! Treat yourself - you deserve it!!

  • Yeah that's what I like to hear, shopping and treats!!!

    Glad you got through W2R1

    I'm going to do it tomorrow and your right about not eating beforehand. That's what happened to me last night.

  • Well done for carrying on! Go get a gait analysis before buying Trainers, it makes such a difference having the right footwear, cuts down on injuries too!

  • Haha! That made laugh I've just ordered new trainer and I'm going to buy some 'running' clothes! I've just done week 2 run 1!
