It was my first run today after the 5K twilight run on Friday after which I felt the sky was the limit. I decided to repeat Week 4 run 3 as I had pushed myself further than Laura advised two days ago but despite the 'easy' task I really struggled. The first three minute run left me totally breathless and the wind in my face didn't help. I did seem to get into a (slow) rhythm over the five minute runs and they felt slightly easier. However my overall time was pathetically slow and my ancient knees and especially my hips were aching quite badly by the end. I think I may have overdone it by attempting 5K so soon. Just hope my joints will recover. I will follow the programme religiously from now on. I've learned my lesson!
