Went for my 1st ever "run" 6 days ago having had an urge to run! After 47 years?! I then "found" couch to 5k the next day so started it, in the snow, 2 days after that 1st outing. Was pleasantly surprised but then found that the pain in my groin meant delaying run 2 by 24 hours. Did this last night in temps of minus goodness knows what- damn cold! Found the lower temp made my breathing more dificult and the pain in my groin had returned by the end of my 5 minute warm up! I persevered and completed the run, thought that I wouldn't be able to walk today! Surprised that it doesn't feel too bad, I think that's because my hips hurt now! Despite the aches and pains I have never before felt that feeling of being totally energised and refreshed (?) that you get after a run. I don't care how long this takes me but I aim to see it through with the help of a few Ibuprofen!! Run 3 tomorrow! Slightly nervus about approaching week 2!
