Not to be beaten by a cracking headache, I took some painkillers this morning and set out on week 5 run 3. The most important run of c25k? I knew if the headache beat me I would be in serious doubt about my ability to complete this running lark, so it was a test of some kind that's for sure.
Well, to cut a blog short, I finished ok but was nearly sick! Guess it was the painkillers sludging about in my stomach. The feeling of satisfaction didn't come for a few minutes but slowly and surely a little smile crossed my face....I had done it! I feel very proud of myself!
Maybe it was the stress of worrying about this wretched 20 minute run that gave me the headache, but it's easing now and I can relax in the knowledge that it's done. Yippee!
