I cannot believe the difference my new running shoes made this evening (Saucony ProGrid Phoenix 5 if anyone's interested!) - instead of my usual plodjogging I actually ran. The last five minutes were really hard, but it's the first week since week one that I actually felt like I pushed myself. I couldn't help but smile as I ran (I know - weirdo) - it all feels like it's coming together.
I ache now (although I was wearing heels today, which I rarely do and my legs felt it by the time I got home) - but I feel great. Looking forward to Friday morning run already!
