I think it's finally clicked!

I can't believe how well today's run went! I'm still a bit in shock!

I made sure to have a banana and some water before I left the house after lasts runs episode, so I left the house feeling optimistic. It probably also helped that I was wearing my new kit!

I found my pace really quickly and I had no issues with stitches which has always been a problem for me.

My breathing felt fine as well! I usually focus too much on my breathing which means I always over think it and can never get into a rhythm, but today was different!

The whole run felt so natural and I even had enough time to speed up at the end, with a quick recovery :)

Another plus, I've noticed some muscle definition on my calf! It finally feels like this is making a REAL difference! Thank you Laura!

Happy running everyone!

Stats = 3.48 km in 25 mins (need to pick up the pace!)
