On very little sleep this morning I set off before work trying to pretend the 3 minute runs would not actually happen!
I ran my 90 seconds oddly comfortably but even at this point could not imagine 3 whole minutes. I used the mantra "well I couldnt imagine 60 seconds 3 weeks ago". The prompt kicked in and I was off...I zoned out completely and faced straight a head picking a distant wheely bin as my target...and tadaa I did it
My phone cut the music out at this point so I spent most of my 3 minute brisk walk firing it up again!!
The final 3 minutes were awful, but I never stopped. I did however get this sick feeling in my throat like I was either going to be sick (sorry if tmi) or my airway was going to cut out. Lifting my head and looking forward made it worse with the cold air and tilting down triggered the sick feeling. Took me a few minutes to shake it off afterwards but who cares!
Those last 20 seconds of my run I was screaming (in my head of course) I need to blog!! I cant blog and tell them I couldnt do it!! Amazing what gets us through
