Woohoo I completed the whole 8 runs! My cheeks are still burning, I have a foot cramp, I’m soaking wet from the rain … but I just had to come and tell you all that I did it. So excited. Can’t do a little dance because my calves hurt and foot is cramping, but I’m dancing on the inside.
Today I have had a really busy and stressful day and I’ve had a whopper of a headache. I got home at 4.30 and it was still raining. Normally just one of those “things” would have served as a great excuse not to run, but not today. I had to run today no matter what. I have committed to this and I don’t want to let myself down. I also loved the comments on my last post and was so excited that I had inspired some other people to do this, I now can’t let them down. I’ve got to keep going so they keep going. I hope they blog about it and inspire someone else.
I came in, got changed, grabbed my shoes, my ipod, the dog, his poo bags and off we went down to the school. I turned on the iPod and I listened to my running man and I just did what he said. Before I knew it, he said “this is your last run”! I might have done a little fist pump when he said that … and I could have let out a little squee. I did it.
I repeated Run 1 as I said I would do this until I completed all 8 runs. I can tick that off now – DONE. Friday will be my next run. I think I will also take my doggy again because he seemed to take my mind off my legs burning. Plus he’s got the biggest arse a dog could possibly have, so if he’s going to pull some doggy chicks this summer he needs to work it!
Thank you so much for the encouragement on my last post … it was just what I needed. Sass, Tracy, Suzi, Susan, Thea and Rosie – have you downloaded the program yet? Have you started? I really want to hear how you went if you did and follow your progress too. We can inspire each other. In fact I’ve noticed quite a few people starting via Twitter. Let us know who is doing it so we can all keep each other motivated.
See you for a C25K update on Friday.
