I did it.

I really did.

I have blisters under my feet (*must wear socks in future*), I have scared a fisherman (*must not sing loudly and tunelessly to backing music when approaching riverbank at sunset*), I have worried the dog (she’s getting the hang of the stop-start run bursts now, but was very concerned about them to start with).

I still, however, finish each session scarlet, sweating and unable to speak.

It’s still HARD. Though not as hard as the first one.

Do I move on to week 2, or re-do week one til it gets easier?

Onwards. Always moving onwards. That’s the spirit.

Think I’ll go have a lie down now…

On the upside, there may be totally necessary shoe shopping ahead…
