Nearly a week and a half in and apart from nearly dying in a hot tub (um, hot tubs are an important part of my training even though apparently Paula Radcliffe gets into a bath of ice after a run) I’m still going!
I’ve invested in socks that have L and R printed onto them – which is about the closest I get to using technology so far damnit. I’ve done 5 runs now for a total of 9.5 miles!
As you can see, for the first 6 weeks the time goes up about 5 minutes a week, which I can sort of deal with if I felt like I was improving on each run. Unfortunately all I can think of as a goal is not dying, which I’ve managed… so far.
