Well that's week 7 run 1 done, and I really quite enjoyed myself.
During the walk and the first bit of the run I kept getting the giggles, as the music on the podcast made me think it should be playing over the opening credits to a 1980's American sitcom. Every time the saxophone popped up I started laughing; passers by must have thought I was a lunatic.
The run went pretty well for the first 20 minutes and then I was very tired for the last 5, but managed it OK - although needless to say there was no sprint finish, despite Laura coaxing me on.
One thing that threw me slightly was that for the first time I used Endomondo to track my run. I had it set to say when I passed each km, but what I hadn't realised was that it would pause the podcast. After the first 1km point I was running for about 20 seconds thinking 'This is a dramatic pause' before I realised what had happened! So I was somewhat hampered by having to fish my phone out of my running belt every km and start the podcast again. I probably should have just turned the setting off but I wasn't sure how, and trying to work it out while jogging along in the sunshine didn't seem the best way to find out.
Really pleased that this was so much easier than W6R3. I think I felt much more confident when I set out, as I knew I could already do the distance, and that made all the difference. Roll on next run, hope it's the same or even a bit better.
