The alarm went off as usual today at 05.55 and my first thought was “my god it’s dark today” At first my partner said he was going to rest and not come with me but eventually he changed his mind.
This is the first time I’ve ran with anyone else as I usually run on my own. As we left the house it started to drizzle and then the drizzle soon became proper rain. Now this sounds silly but I have always avoided running or walking in the rain but I actually enjoyed it, it was lovely and cooling. Rain will no longer be an excuse for not running
My partner was very good and let me run at my own pace (i.e. slooooow) and would come back to me to walk together. As I’m sitting here now writing this, today’s run was a little easier I think. I’m still dreading the move to running 5 minutes next week though but I’m keeping my faith in the programme.
I was also quite pleased because my partner has a relatively active job role and he said that at times, he found the three minutes a struggle
I’ve weighed in again this morning and although I’ve remained the same weight as last week, I’ve lost more inches (see below) total loss so far is in brackets
Weight loss – 0lbs (8lbs in total)
Chest – 1 inch (2 inches in total)
Waist – ½ inch (2 inches in total)
Hip – ½ inch (2 inches in total)
I’m really pleased with my progress so far. My partner even told me last night that he could tell that I’ve lost weight, which is a real incentive.
My next run is W4R1 on Monday, so wish me luck for then
