Alternative title: Because nothing says “get your arse out of bed!” like knowing someone is waiting for you to start running … At 6am … In the cold. Ugh! I’m pretty sure not even the birds are awake at that hour as I only really heard them start their tweeting an hour later while I attempted to warm up in a shower set to ‘hotter than the sun’.
Week 4 has been a major milestone for me, not only did my running partner and I actually reach 5K while doing the week 4 intervals (I know right?! I’m thrilled!) … But I also managed to control my Anxiety long enough to go running with someone new (I met D the morning of the run – she’s a friend of a friend), on a route I didn’t know, for a time period longer than intended.
I not only stepped out of my comfort zone … But I also legged it for a couple of miles from there too!
