Oh My Goodness!

Cloudy grey morning after the lovely ones we've been having for the last few days, but I was going jogging anyway.

Off I set at 9am and I put on the podcast for 20 minutes. I actually started jogging about 30 seconds before Laura piped up to start, I had to remember to slow it down a bit. Kept on going 5 minutes done, stilling going good, changed my route a bit too. 10 minutes done, so I was half way and still all is good. Keep going and don't listen to the voices (haha) just enjoy the run. I think I found my pace finally :-) Laura told me I'm done and I kept going, in fact I kept going all through the cool down walk and did 26 minutes total jogging. :-D I actually felt like I could have continued a bit further but I was already at the back of my house. I didn't set out to do more than 20 minutes so the pressure wasn't there to do more, I just did. :-D Hopefully I have knocked the wall down and can now continue with week7. :-) I actually felt like shouting "YES I'VE DONE IT" when I stopped (hahaha) but I didn't.

Happy jogging everyone. And thank you all for the wonderful support and advice. :-)

  • Thank you Mason. :-) Wishing you the very best of luck for week 7. I do run 2 tomorrow. Best advise I can give you is try not to think too much about it and just take it slow. :-)

    Isn't it funny how addictive running is. When I'm not running I'm thinking and talking about running. I think everyone is sick of hearing me going on about. LOL

  • Thats what makes this website so great ha ha as it is addictive but thats because i didnt like many others believe i would get this far and yes i love getting out to run even though none of my friends or husband ( pe teacher) thought id ever stick with it and that feels great

    Happy running caz
