4 down, 23 to go!
Did my first week 2 run this morning, found it mostly ok until the very last run where I felt like I was basically running on the spot. I kept waiting for Laura (the podcast woman) to tell me to walk again and I honestly thought she had forgotten about me. But I got there in the end. Doesn't help that I live at the top of a hill in all directions, so my 5 min warm up walk is downhill then it's running back up the rest of the way! I might try to find a flatter park before the runs get too much longer otherwise I worry that my wee legs will not be able to get me back home again. I'm still proud that I have done it though, and if I've done it once, I can do it again!
Well done Shedboy on your parkrun, and congrats to your daughter for her amazing result! She must be chuffed to bits.
KattC, let us know how you get on with your 5k today, remember to just keep going!
Happy running everyone
