Just looking at that picture of the cottage on my last post makes me want to go back! We had a wonderful, relaxing time and the weather was perfect (a little chilly Friday...but warmed up nicely after that and NO RAIN! YAY!) We decided to stay an extra day after all the kids left and have a little alone time. We got some hostas planted and finished one of the rock walls around the upper terrace. Also took a slow, long boat ride and soaked up some sunshine.
I finished up week 3 of Cto5K with my daughter on Saturday and on Monday - I did week four/day one. I was nervous as heck thinking about those 5 minute runs (especially since our cottage is situated in the hills and I knew there wouldn't be flat terrain) But I did it! And I didn't have to stop once (but I will admit that first 5 minute run was partially uphill and I was struggling.) I gave not gotten any side stitches yet - and my feet & legs are holding up well. It's just trying to catch my breath. My daughter says that the real training going on here is my body learning how to breathe properly. I think she's right.
My seasoned runners out there.....is this so? And will I get to a point where the breathing isn't such a struggle? I'm confident about the rest of this week but next week looks intimidating, (Didn't I say that last week?)
There's so much more to write about and many blogs to catch up on - but there is also a mountain of laundry here and suitcases to be emptied.
