Set off full of enthusiasm and really determined to do it after my little set-back on Wednesday. But almost from the start my legs didn't feel quite so enthusiastic - it felt like I was still running through mud! They got heavier and heavier and I was getting slower and slower and after about 15 mins they gave up. I was so cross with myself.
To get home I had to dash across a busy road in between traffic and then I just carried on...and on....and on...! Even when the podcast finished I decided to keep going to see how long I could go on for and blow me, I actually managed the full 25 minutes that time! On top of the previous 15. So, I know that I can do it.
I don't know if it was the cold air, tiredness, a psychological barrier or what. Anyway, I'm going to take 2 days off and try again on Monday. Maybe a longer warm-up walk is what I need - and perhaps I'll try a different route too. But, I did run non-stop for 25 minutes in the end!
