Today was the first time since starting this program I didn't feel like running, but hadn't missed a day yet and wasn't going to break the promise to myself not to quit, so went.
First 5 mins was the thoughest of any run I've done, and I seriouly considered quitting several times but didn't. It was not helped by a slightly painful knee but with a knee support and some determination I got through it. Was at 4.5 km by the time Laura called time, but I felt ok and could see the 5km marker so went for it and completed 5k in 27m47s. Amazed and very proud of my efforts.
Think I may rest 3 days this time to make sure knee is ok as don't want to risk a real injury and determined to make it through to the regular 30 minute runs. May reward myself with a cup of tea and a twix now !!!!
