I am really enjoying my Friday after work runs. It has been a stressful month for me at work so it is nice to be able to come home and just run out all the tension. Last night's run was amazing. I started with a slightly altered route which allowed more nature viewing and that helped me to get my mind off the physical process of running, I paced myself well, got into a groove arund the 10min mark and was feeling great up until the 20min mark when my thighs were burning but I pushed through and when Laura said to amp up the pace for the last minute I gave it a red hot go and increased speed even though it was up hill.
So so so proud and I was on a high while feeling it in my legs. So when Laura said I was a real runner the tears started flowing. I can run for 25mins now when 6 weeks ago I hadn't run since I was in primary school. Amazing.
The goal of running for 30mins is becoming a reality. Bring on week 7!!!
