Ok, what can I say, you were all right, trust in Laura and the programme..... I was all set to repeat run 2 tonight to try and build up more confidence before attempting the run that seems to have us all quaking with fear but after reading blogs in my lunch break I decided to bite the bullet and just give it a try.....
I followed the route I did for run 2 but took legions advice and made my warm up slightly longer so that I had crossed the main road and therefore passed the worst of the hill before I started running.
My Achilles were very tight and my legs felt heavy but my breathing wasn't too bad (it's a bit cooler today) when Laura said I had run for 10 minutes I was chuffed as that was the most I have ever run without walking, at 15 I felt so proud and suddenly realised I could do it, wasn't even dying by the end which is usually the norm..... Straight home and into a hot bath feeling rather proud and chuffed! Just hope I don't suffer too much tomorrow!
To all you other week 5ers, if I can do it anyone can!!!! Keep going xx
