They really mean it when they say things are going to get more difficult, don't they? Just listening to the schedule of the run got me panicking.
Just about managed the first 3min run. Then the first 5min was killer. I felt awful afterwards. I had to actually take probably another 90secs on top of the recovery time because I felt so nauseous. I swear those recovery times are a sham! But onwards I struggled and made it to the end of the first session. "Relieved" doesn't even come close to how I felt! Blimey.
My legs felt like lead the entire time. I think the best part of a month of working the late shift has caught up with me. I was meant to run yesterday, but didn't because the weather was so horrific and I couldn't actually get out of bed. I was so tired I nearly missed work (and I'm on a 3.45PM start at the mo!). But I got myself up and out today, filled with a little smidge of enthusiasm.
I am dreading run 2!
Oh, I must take the time to apologise to Laura. I told her to "Go away" in some very unpleasant ways today, when all she was trying to be was helpful. I can't promise anything behaviour-wise for our next outing though, I'm afraid, Laura.
It did make me feel good when you told me I'd run for 16 whole minutes today, though. So for that, thank you.
And is it just my tastes, or has the music suddenly taken a huge nosedive?
