Thank you to all you lovely people out there who read my blog and encouraged me! I've been out again and intrepidly covered 2 miles at a damp slightly puffed walk! I'm really quite chuffed with myself. It wasn't an exactly record breaking pace of 3 miles an hour but I'm pleased. I did feel it in my lower back and right calf muscle (muscle!?) but mentally I wasn't quite so scared of what I could and couldn't achieve.
I've made a pact with myself (and the dogs) to start the running bit of this on 19th February. Why then? Well I'll hopefully be a teeny bit fitter and my daughter and running mate will be back from Uni. I will see a clean pair of heels as she started c25k last year.
The dogs were a little better behaved. I could apologies to approaching dog walkers before the Sprites kicked off (what sort of dog? 2 of the very small and very yappy sort) I wore boots rather than wellies too which made walking easier. It was refreshing to see the first primrose! I forgot to take a pic which is annoying. I did find The Giant in The Woods and took a pic of him so watch this space for me mastering downloading from my phone!
I still have to sort myself out with a decent mp3 player. It has to be easy to use , cheap and idiot proof. Any recommendations?
