Wk 5 Run 1 just completed, considering just over 5 weeks ago I couldn't run for the minute, I stopped smoking 9 weeks ago, I have 3 stone to loose and I'm knocking on the door of 50, I wonder if I'm going too slow. At the start my heart was beating out of my chest and now it isn't, I'm hardly noticing an increased heart rate. I'm still gasping for breath on the runs - only to be expected after years of the evil weed, but recovering easier on the walking periods. I'm not sure that my running periods are much faster than the walking ones. Should I worry about speed just yet or concentrate on completing the nine week plan first? I'm really proud of myself thus far, just don't want to be cheating myself. Any advice as always gratefully received. Many thanks x
