I managed my W6R2 this evening and I must say I am feeling pretty chuffed with myself! For the first time I actually got annoyed with having to walk after the first run. I had a good pace going and found it harder to pick up again on the second run than if I had kept on going. Maybe this is a good sign as from what I can gather on other blogs I think this may be the last time I have a break inbetween runs but maybe someone can confirm this for me.
Just after I had got going on the first 10 minute run though there is a brige that I have to cross, and its only wide enough for one person. I could see these really slow walkers up ahead of me and I had to make a decision as to whether to keep my pace and risk getting there the same time as them or put a spurt on and overtake them. They were quite far ahead though and I didnt want to ruin my energy levels so I decided to keep my pace and yes youve guessed it i got to the bridge exactly at the same time as they put their first step onto it! I had to jog on the spot a bit and wait for them to get to the other side which was really annoying. When I told my husband about it when I got home, he said he sees runners all the time shouting out "runner coming through"! I wish I had done the same! Its a bit selfish though dont you think or does anyone else do that?!
I feel a real challenge coming on with the last run of week 6 but I really cant believe how fast the weeks are going by. It almost feels like yesterday that I started this whole journey and I can still remember week 1 thinking well everyone else can do this but there is no way that I can and here I am actually doing it! Its funny how when you start this plan you are constantly reading other peoples blogs who are on week 5,6,7,8 etc and its feels like you will never be one of those people but here i am blogging about week 6. Feeling very proud of myself today Good luck to everyone else and whatever stage you are at just remember one thing.... every time you go out and run you have achieved something amazing. Dont ever give up! Onwards and Upwards
