That's what started playing on my mp3 player on shuffle as I stepped outside to start my run this morning (I'd already done my 5 min warm up walk*) and today I had three silver linings.
1. The rain had stopped during my warm up walk and stayed off until I was 10 minutes walk from home.
2. I saw three roe deer emerge from the woods and dash off over the grass when I was running through the country estate that was part of today's run
3. I ran 5K for the first time!! I went 5.3 km actually in 38 minutes! I did the 5 km in 35 mins, which is slower than my previous 4 km runs, but I felt a lot better for going slower. I felt I could have run a bit more, but didn't wish to push it. However, this new route left a 3 km walk home and after about 10 minutes walking, I ran another kilometre along the road, stopping when I got to the steep hill that I'm not going to attempt yet.
Today was a lovely relaxed run and I felt good during it and not just when I'd finished. I was conscious of trying to maintain a 'conversational pace' and although I was running alone, I think I would have been ok to talk to someone. My breathing is still too shallow and fast, but I wasn't panting or breathless at all and I kept on practising my belly breathing every so often.
*If it's cold enough to need a sweatshirt for my warm-up walk, I set off from the house in the opposite direction to my usual running route, walk for 3 mins, turn back and drop my sweatshirt in the garden - or if it's raining like today take it back to the house - then head out going the other direction.
