Ok, so I havent run for a week. my fault.
Another solo run today, did the last mandatory week 2 podcast. week 3 sooooon! I listened to what it consists of, it’s quite a big jump. But manageable…I hope!
The run went well, I got a stitch, but ran though it. AND didnt get shin splint until the last little bit of my run. which was a nice change…
I was worried about running during lunchtime, as my route takes me through town. I was expecting it to be busy, and I don’t feel very confident running in front of large groups of people.I was going to edit my route and go a shorter way through the busy part of my run, instead I kept telling myself ‘I dont care what they think, I’m doing this for me’ and other motivational blah blah.
Lucky for me, it wasn’t busy, so all my worrying was for nothing. I was glad I didn’t cut my route short.
New week, new runs. I will keep up with this.

Just got back from my first solo run.
It went well, I paced myself well and even continued running for a few seconds after the podcast had said to stop. however, I did have to stop halfway to do up my shoelaces!
My ankles were not very happy to have weight on them! they felt really stiff and strained the whole way around, I believe this could be because I was on my feet all day at work, and my shoes weren’t done up tight enough (before I stopped to re-lace them). they still weren’t very happy after I had tightened my trainers, so I’m leaning more towards them being overtired. I’ve also been having trouble with my left knee today, a slight twinge. While running I noticed my hips were aching, and now that I’m back home my hips are still aching. I’m hoping this is just down to being at work rather than some form of running injury! …
My breathing was much better, not chatting helps to concentrate on pulling air in and out!
I enjoyed the run, even with the aches and pains, it was a nice time to run. My route goes into town in the middle of it, and it was nice to see the town after all the shoppers had gone home, before all the night life comes out.
I think it’s slowly dawning on me that I like running 😐 Weird.
