Totally forgot how big my eldest daughter is now!
Struggled with this run, but it’s just making me a stronger mother.
Every mile with a buggy is making my body work harder than a mile without, so I’ll stick with it and take the swear in my eyes and the pain in my legs and know that when I run the marathon my body will feel like it’s flying because it won’t be pushing over 6 stone (84 lbs) in a buggy!

Anxiety has got the better of me for weeks now.
Hiding away, not wanting to be seen.
Today I am taking the bull by the horns.
I am wearing shorts, which make me hugely anxious, I am wearing long socks, which make me hugely anxious (both are worn by ‘real’ runners and so I often feel like a fraud even considering wearing them)
Add that to my anxiety about people at the moment and I am a huge ball of mess.

BUT, this will probably be my most mentally uncomfortable run ever, which means tomorrow will definitely be better.
The day after can only get better etc.

I am creating my own discomfort to trick my brain into being positive.
Wish me luck!!

Day 1 of marathon training after 2 weeks off from running because of a chest cold.
I was meant to do a 30 minute shake out run (after a long run I was meant to do yesterday) but after about 8 minutes and 1 coughing fit, I knew I needed to be sensible so jumped off after a mile.
Disappointed, but glad i got it done.
