Well I ran my first run on Sunday this week and felt quite emotional as the first run began. The sun was just burning through some clouds and it was not too chilly, I could not believe I was going out on a run...... Me...... Running!!! Excitement aside I was huffing and puffing through just the second minute of running and immediately I had some negative thoughts pop into my head (I'm too unfit for this, I'm breathing too hard, running isn't my thing etc) I know a lot of this is going to be a mind game for me but I really am struggling to breath and feel like I am going slower than if I were to walk?? Never the less, it's my second run tomorrow and I actually can't wait.... Lets see how long the enthusiasm lasts out for. As I run I keep telling myself my mantra.... "I'm doing this for my kids, I'm doing this for my kids" x
