So yesterday was the official R1 of W5 - I say official as I had already done this run twice due to choosing the wrong podcast!
I wasn't anxious as the previous run had felt really comfortable but I hadn't reckoned on the weather yesterday. I run in a park which is quite open and boy, the wind was so strong - I found it really tough but I did it! Really didn't enjoy it as much as the other runs but at least it's done. The thing I'm concerned about is this week is the week of the 'big one' and I'm worried that the weather is going to make it even harder. I'm trying to be positive though - if I can do it in this weather, I guess it can only get easier right?!
So the next run is 2 x 8 minutes which seems a lot but I've been finding that I'm "zoning out" more now when I'm running and thinking about other things rather than "when will this end?" So I think that will help.
Good luck to everyone running in this weather this weekend x
