Went out there today really ready for it! Turned on ipod-no week 9, or week 8. Stupid thing had deleted weeks 8 & 9 whilst downloading stepping stones, speed and stamina last night. Well heck! I was not going to run without music or without Laura holding my hand, so tuned into week 7. This was ideal, as 25m run-all I had to do was run an extra 5m when Laura said it was the warm down walk. I did, and actually enjoyed it. My chest was tight-thought i'd taken my inhalers, but turned out I hadn't. Psychologically good as I kept on running and soon I was breathing ok. One lady asked as I was running past her if I was doing a running programme-yelled out couch to 5K, just hope she heard me. Lots of encouragement, and whenever and appropriate said this is my Graduate week-I Graduate on Friday. lots of beaming smiles and thumbs up. Some little ones decided to run with me for a bit-put me to shame! And a lovely sheep-dog too, who has run with me before-not too far, but just a few yards. Another 2 runs and I've done it! Andy sent me small T shirts which arrived today, in place of the large, so will wear one when I go out on Friday-just hope not to big!
Just to let you guys know sports direct are selling jogging pants for £6.50-bought 2 pairs online last night. Cheap and cheerful for me
