Week 3 run 1

That was a big surprise! Perhaps it was because I ran in a park near our son's house in Bradford. It was a lovely run in the sun on smooth, mostly flat ground. I ran round a lake and the sun was shining. I ran the whole course with no problems (after dreading it all week)! In fact after I'd done the cool down and Laura congratulated me I then ran again 50 yards or so just for the joy of it! I think one of the reasons it went well is that I somehow got my breathing sorted. I was also spurred on by the thought that you'd all be pleased if I did it.

In addition I have converted a friend of our son's! She's gone home to download the podcasts! She's at least half my age!
