So I managed Wk4R1 today but was a teeny bit apprehensive about running 5 mins non stop and had to resort to Imodium beforehand. A bit desperate, I know. But now I can't get my head around the fact that it's 20mins at the end of next week - it seems a gargantuan leap, and I'm not sure Imodium will suffice! Does anyone else suffer pre-run nerves like this? Today's run was actually ok - not exactly a breeze, but do-able once I remembered to slow right down and pace myself (I'm sure it was nervous tension causing the breathlessness). I know if I could just relax and enjoy it, things would probably feel easier... But TWENTY mins.... NEXT WEEK?!!! Seriously?! Otherwise loving this programme - as other people have commented, it's very clever and inspirational, working on the psychology as much as the fitness to get you through ... at least that's what I'm hoping will happen next week!
