Not Now Laura

Completed week 6 run 2 tonight in the heat.

Two runs of 10 mins with 3 minute gap.

Why ?

Just enjoying the run and into a rhythm when its time for a walk.

Anyway, followed orders and then decided to run the 5 minute walk at the end as I didnt want to stop and felt good.

This may sound like a rant but its more of a compliment at how good this program is.

6 weeks ago 1 minute runs were enough. Now I am just getting into my stride at 10 minutes.

I wasnt sure about going out tonight but am very glad I did.

Hope this encourages someone who may be finding it hard going.

It really does get easier !

  • I am only in week 2 and it seems to me you are doing amazingly well! To me, what you're doing seems like a miracle! Following the programme seems the way forward and you've convinced me of that x

  • Thanks mica. I guess I am really enjoying it. All thanks to Laura and the podcasts though. They really do seem to work. Good luck with week 2.

  • I did the same run last night and like you didn't want to stop and walk for 3 mins :). Still that's it now no more walking in between runs!

  • Yep, no more pit stops. Like your tortoise photo. Think it might have passed me on one of the early runs...
