I had another blip shall we call it W6R3 on Monday where I had a funny thing going on mid run. As usual I found it all very hard but got to the halfway mark and then a couple of minutes roughly after that I thought I can't do this stopped, decided yes you can, started again, thought you have ruined it now so stopped then thought but don't give up so started again. This in all took around 60 seconds and I then ran to the end. So run not a success, but did leave me feeling see you could have done it had you not been so stupid.
My daughter had joined me for her first run as she thinks this running lark has toned mum up I will have some of that so whatever I have at least motivated her. She is finding week one hard and has a stomach problem that is being investigated (possible coeliac disease) so have told her just to give it her best. She was up early today so as not to hold me up and I thought her enthusiasm is enough that I cant just give up without a good reason, so today I officially by Laura became a runner!!!
I wont say I couldn't have easily given up at any single point but had my own music with a good beat in one ear and Laura in the other, Laura's early indications of 5 mins, 12 and half drive me mad but when she said 20 I was elated. I kept thinking you love this song you can't ruin it by remembering you failed during this one keep going so I did.
Now for some advice, my legs are very very heavy and have been since W5R2 and of course the two repeated runs W5R3 and W6R3. Is this normal as my thighs just haven't stopped aching. I was exercising in other ways the days in between but have stopped this to make sure I am recovered but my legs don't improve. Any ideas?
