Evening all. My plan was to do W6R3 tonight after work but I wasn't sure if I'd be up to the 25 mins run. I hadn't planned my route through the local streets very well and ended up with some uphill bits and I had to slow my pace even more than it had been at the start. When the going got hard I kept in mind all the people doing C25K and all those who have graduated and all the encouragement and positivity I read in the blogs. And guess what? That kept me going and I finished!!!
When Laura finally said it was time to walk my legs were a bit jellyish but eventually my walk was brisker than it had been in earlier weeks. Weird. It must be my fitness improving and thats such a good feeling.
I heard footsteps behind me at one point during the run and I was soon overtaken by a young bloke in a hurry to get somewhere, I started to think "I'm soooo embarrassed" but then I thought....I'm out there running on a dark, cold, wet night so I've absolutely nothing to feel embarrassed about. After a shower and dinner I now feel weary but a nice weary.
Thanks to all on here for helping me through it
