I feel it would be lying to say I can run for five minutes now - it's definitely jogging (slowly), but my goodness, I can do it! I went out in the morning for the second time, and I also changed my route to run down a trail which skirts playing fields and onto a riverside route. I was feeling tired at the start before I went out but once I was past the first 3min run, I really enjoyed it, despite the wind and temperatures. I have to say, in comparison to some of you I feel I've got off lightly as we don't actually have snow here. So I'm now into double figures with the number of runs I've done. I can feel the hurdle of a week Friday and wk5r3 looming larger and larger.
Having said that, I'm edging towards feeling a tiny little bit like a runner. I even had an authentic runner's experience too - I got "crotched" by a passing dog. Luckily it was a friendly Dalmatian and I'm not bothered by that type of dog. A Rottweiler on the other hand..... I managed to do today's run in the daylight as it's school holidays here and I took the day off to spend with my son, so now I have the dilemma of whether I try to get out before work on Wednesday or go back to vampire running after dark.
