Firstly, thanks to those who replied on my blog yesterday. I got home, made dinner and zonked out, I was so tired !
So, today I felt rested, made sure I drank lots of water throughout the day, had a carb based lunch and began counting the minutes down til I left work for the gym. I can't say that I was looking forward to the first run of Wk2 and I hadn't listened to the podcast until I was walking to the gym today. Ok, I thought, 90 second runs should be manageable ...
So, I set the treadmill up to accommodate the time needed to complete the podcast, pressed GO and... Nothing ! The treadmill computer must have frozen up and wouldn't start. Jumped on the next one, did my 5 minutes brisk walk as warm up and started the first 90 second run...... Then the podcast froze..! I continued to run for the 90 seconds but as the podcast hadnt restarted, I had to stop.
Now, at this point, I could have quite happily given up but I persevered, reset the treadmill and started again on the first run; by now, the podcast had buffered and was fine. ( note to self: download podcast and check it prior to the first run of each week)
Everything after that went OK, I didn't find it easy and had to slow my pace in both my jogging and walking pace but I finished and, as always, it felt great to achieve it.
I did feel a bit flat footed on my walks and looking at my reflection in the window is not pleasant; my weaker leg looks wonky and I will never be an elegant jogger but I'm managing to do it bit by bit and now I am home, sat with a nice glass of red to celebrate getting through the latest milestone
