Well, after getting a sore throat and cough, I am finally starting to feel better. The cough is pretty much gone now, and after running around with my daughter on the beach I felt fine. It was only for about 10 minutes messing around but gave me confidence.
I am a great procrastinator, so I feel MUST run today, or will keep putting it off. I reached wk8 after repeating wk7 twice, and was really disappointed that I had to rest. I plan to run for 20 minutes, all in one if my breathing is ok, or as 2 x 10 min if I feel I need a break in the middle.
Now I am posting here to encourage myself to get out there. The colder weather doesn't bother me, but I am having gremlin trouble. I'd just managed to get rid of them, then was ill! Hope I can lose them again on my way round (they are currently whispering in my ear that running is hard!) Pesky gremlins!
