Although not a regular blogger, I was on here a couple of weeks ago after a very disappointing "Stamina" run a week after graduation. Couldn't see how to get to the elusive 5k. Well I must admit that, despite the encouraging words of a lots of lovely people on here, it knocked me back for a week or so and nothing seemed to work for me. BUT .... today I did it!!!! My first Park Run!
I so nearly talked myself out of it - wanted to wait until I was certain I could complete it - but a dear friend, who doesn't even like running but is generally much fitter than me, persuaded me and came along to keep me company. Time was 37:35 which I know is not brilliant but I would've been happy with anything under 40. To be honest I was happy to be still standing! At least I know I can do it and can work from there.
So ... Thank you everyone for your advice - It was all good even though it took me a while to pick myself up and follow it. Today, finally, I really do feel like a runner ????
PS My friend who doesn't like running ejoyed it so much she's talking about "next time"!
