C25K Run 3 Done & Dusted

Today I really struggled to get the motivation to actually go for my run. As one does these days, I reached out to Twitter and the motivation was sent my way, in spades. My lovely Tweets cheering me on, giving me enough inspiration and motivation to get up and go.

I made it again – the whole 8 x 60 second runs. Woo hoo! I started out well. The first 2 runs were good, but by the third run I remembered that I forgot to go to the bathroom before I left home. This made the 3rd, 4th & 5th run a bit stressful. By the 6th run I’d lost count and still thought I was on the 5th run, so spent the next run wondering what run I was up to. The great news is I had actually run more than I thought so what I thought was going to be my second last run was actually my last. That was a bonus.

Doggy came with me, but was still limping a little from the last run. Clearly he is a little bit soft and needs to harden up. He is lying under my desk exhausted. I think the C25K is going to be harder on him than me!!

I’m not loving running yet – not even liking it – maybe next week I will feel differently. I am however, loving the afterglow of exercise. Such a nice feeling as those endorphins wind their way through my body. Even if I never really enjoy the run, I had forgotten how nice it feels afterwards. It has been far too long.

Next run Sunday.

    Oh the bodily function aspect…I tend not to write in my blog that on my early morning runs I spend the first half thinking I need to do an…um…you know, starts with the letter p – o – o. 😉 Week one over already – go you good thing! xx

    Oh, I hate running. I’ve been doing it since I had Cappers (so about fiveish years… what that?). Every step has sucked. But it remains the one exercise that I’ve stuck with because really, what’s the excuse not to run? You just put on your trainers (or not) and head out the door of wherever you happen to be. And you only have to do it for half the time of walking, so it’s easy to find the time you need. Gold. x

    Well done Annie. It is so worth it for the afterglow. And the bodily finction bit – oh annoying. I get up at 5am to blog and coffee before I run so that I am assurred of getting the poo activity out of the way……

    Hi Annie – Oh, I wish I have started already! However, living on a property and having had over 2 inches of rain, I fear that I wouldn’t get very far before I can’t lift my feet due to the mud stuck to my runners! As soon as it dries out, I’ll be there with you 🙂

    Then again, it would make me work harder wouldn’t it? Bit like running through loose sand at the beach…
