So today was my first run of week 3 and I was terrified. 3 minutes? Thats twice as long as last week! Is this woman crazy??! But ...
... I did it! Snaps for me!
That first 3 minutes was a SERIOUS struggle, despite the entirley unintentional coincidence that it was mostly down a gentle slope.
However I made it to the end in good spirits, until I was over taken by a meandering dogwalker during my cool down 'brisk walk'. I felt slightly better that she appeared to be a spritly 40 rather than the 60 I thought at first glance but still, uncool.
I did, in an attempt to rid myself of my 'slow shame' add an extra interval at the end. I decided to see if I could run back to my car. And I did! It took me six and a half minutes and I ran it all! I mean at the speed of snail and I may have glimpsed the pearly gates by the end but it was an awesome feeling!
But I must not get carried away. This has happened before, I get excited about my progress then I push too hard and get injured or disheartened.
Positive outcomes only. Postivie outcomes only. Positive outcomes only.
