It was hot out there today and I didn't think I'd be able to run for 90 secs without stopping but to be honest without this podcast I don't think I'd push myself through the runs. I do try and concentrate on other things like the techniques Laura suggests and this seems to help take my mind off some of the negative feelings. Counting the breaths in and out for 4 does help me and at least stops me gasping all the way through the running section (just near the end). The longer recovery time is good and pitched right for me also less runs felt good too. My session this morning has clocked over 5000 steps on my pedometer so I'm half way there for today. Good luck to you all and keep going. I would have been happy to repeat week 1 if I hadn't managed it because just moving ourselves is doing some good.
