Week 5 Run 2 - So pleased so pleased so pleased!

Run 1 of week 5 was awful for me, therefore I was dreading run 2. I had been out all day with daughter swimming and then the park in this cold weather, so decided I didn't want to go out again once I had lit the fire and got all cosy. Partner came home and I told him I wasnt going out it was too cold. He said its warmed up now and I should go.

So off I went. Went on a route I know well it has a long slight incline then is all flat or slightly downhill, so I decided to start a little slower than normal, and it worked. By the time I got to the top of the slight incline Laura had told me I was half way through. On the way back I again have a slight but long incline and I did it so much easier than the last time I ran it, I then upped my pace for the last couple of minutes and when Laura said thats it, I continued to run for another minute to the end of the road.

I felt absolutely ELATED. It just goes to show that no 2 runs or days are the same and I am getting fitter! Bring on Run 3!!!!!!

Lovely, lovely! So good to see progress like that, isn't it? Good for your partner to get you out the door too! Look what you'd have missed. :)


Thanks. I've done alot of different sports etc over the years but never experienced this sense of achievement before. : )


Well done!!! I'm glad you got that extra push to get out the door! We all have good runs/bad runs and when we have a great run, there is no better feeling! Gayle


Well done Julie.

Sounds like you're ready for the big run :-)

Good luck and look forward to seeing your blog once it's done
