So upon the advice of others on here I decided to run slowly. (I'm not quite sure why, but did it none the less! I am nothing if not obedient..)
Off I set, faithful husband tagging along in tow... for my first 30 min run EVER.
I found the hardest bit was not putting my foot down to go faster. So I chatted away to hubbie and felt smug barry re the fact that I could 1. run for 30 minutes 2. not even be that out of breathe! So very happy!
Next run (week 9 r2) I think I'll go normal speed. It will be lovely when I am fit enough to run normally and still be able to speak!
As an aside - calf muscles hurt more than usual this am - seem to use different muscles to shuffle!
Nearly there now!!!!
