Wk2 Erm... too many eggs, not enough chickens

What is that saying? Don't count your chickens....? I thought week 2 run 1 was a breeze! First two ninety seconds, a piece of...well you get my drift. Maybe I should go straight to week 3, I felt like a goddess. Then came the rest of the run. I was nearly a shambles, a quivering reck at the end. Did I run to fast with my new found confidence? Probably. Think I need to take a bit more humility to the next run. Definitely! Still love it though so not all is lost.
