W1R2 things I have learned

My upper thigh was so sore after my first run that I gave myself an extra rest day, did lots of yoga, and used ice packs. This morning it felt fine, so I though I'd give it a go.

This time I used the podcast, slowed down when doing the running bit, as I think I was over ambitious last time, and used my ventolin inhaler before I set off.

My leg was fine when I was running, and I didn't run out of puff, in fact I managed a brief chat with the postman whilst running! Have done lots of post run stretches this time, and feel Ok. So far. Fingers crossed!

well done eebahgum you are doing really well, I am a newbie too and I also have slowed down when doing the running bit - I was also being a bit too ambitious with my running speed too lol. The best of luck to you for week 1 run 3 x


Thanks good luck to you too x
