I really can't believe what a difference a day makes (well two days but whats 24 hours amoungst fellow C25K bloggers?).
Monday was w8r3 and was the WORST ever run for me in the wind. Nothing seemed right, the wind was against me, ladies with dogs forced me in to the road, i got stitch and felt like i was going to have to stop before half way.
But all of your voices in my head kept me going and today I've just finished run 1 of week 9! The music was better, the dog owners moved over, other runners smiled at me as if i was running too (rather than in sympathy because I was shuffling along), I didn't get stitch, the sky was beautiful and I felt OK when Laura said it was time to stop.
To top it all my speed was a good 17 seconds per km faster!
Not sure i know how that works, but all i can say is that I'm so greatful for all of the support here and Laura's promise that I could run for 30 minutes.
Happy running all
