I started my first run today.
After ten years of "don't be silly, you can barely walk, never mind run (insert evil brain laugh)" type internal monologues..I told my brain to shut up and move my legs one foot in front of the other.......But only after waiting for night to fall, so no one out there could see how big , red and puffy I looked while trying to run........so silly isn't it?
Today was easier that i had imagined, my legs did start to hurt half way through but I just pushed on and I also don't think my ending brisk walk was quite as brisk as Laura meant in the podcast but still i went through with it, and I am so glad I did.
I love this feeling, its a mixture of hurt and pride that feels so good!! I am quite scared of the coming weeks, and not sure i can run for more than a minute at a time but time will tell. Is anyone else starting now, and how are you all getting on?
