After being beaten by the gremlins (and a bit of over confidence I think!!) earlier this week - I have just successfully been out on my graduation run!!!
I DID IT!!!!
Two & a half months ago I started this programme & never thought I would get near continuously running for anywhere near 10 mins!!!
But today I managed 4.5k in just over 31 mins.
Not sure where I am gonna find another 0.5k in a minute or so less - but that gives me my next target.
For me, a lot of this was changing my mental thoughts about me running, a lifetimes belief (that I can't run!!) seems to have been changed, the gremlins are still there, but I can push them away (most of the time!)
Many thanks to a lots of my "new friends" for their blogs on here - not just for your advice, but on days where I have not felt like running your blogs have inspired me; odd comments, your enthusiasm, your determination and or your belief helped get me out there.
Good Luck to those still progressing - keep at it. you'll get there.
So there I am - the end of the beginning!!!!
I still wouldn't go as far as saying I enjoy running, but I enjoy the feeling that I've done it when I have finished!!!!!
Ps - one worrying concern for a Northern lad (that I will only share with you!!!!) is that I am quite enjoying wearing tights - what's all that about???!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
