Firstly, hello to everyone on this challenge. I am Allie and I'm a rookie runner.
Well, today was Run 1 and I was pleasantly surprised.
The programme was easy to follow and the music OK.
I am doing the first few weeks on the treadmill and my only gripe today was down to operator error (me!) the treadmill has "sliders" for increasing/ decreasing speed and my finger accidentally slid to run at 14.5km! I panicked and hit the stop button!
So, my first run was split into 2, separated by about a minute. I still did all 8 run intervals though and found it motivating when I was told only 2 more runs to go; it made me think that actually, it was manageable.
Day of rest tomorrow; well, I will be at the gym but doing weights alone, no running.
Very glad to say " I did it; I started running" my poor ankle aches like Hell, but I feel like I've started something good
