Wooly Hat, overheating = Wk9 Run3

I can honestly say that when i started this program 9 weeks ago i wasn't 100% sure i'd make it to the end but i've always had a stubborn streak and slowly i found myself more and more addicted.

At the begining even running for 1 minute made me out of breath and I remember feeling completely exhusted after each session in the early weeks. Then with encouragement from laura and other people on this site and seeing my improvemnets I became addicted waking at 6am in the morning to go for a run before work, something that all my friends and in fact my husband found slightly amusing.

Over the weeks I've resurected my trainers and sports bra, donned some sports socks, brought some running tops (it's surprising how sweaty cotton actually is) and invested in a cool pink high vis gillet.

For those of you reading this at the start of your journey, you can do it, really you can. To all those who have offered support and advice thank you :-)

Keep running every one, Allie C :-)
