I'm on Week 4 Run 2, and both this week I've found really hard. Previous weeks have not been too strenuous, and I've made the jumps between weeks without too many tears (As in, physically it's tough, but the worry that I'm not going to make it is worse and once I've got going I've even started to enjoy it) But now its getting a lot harder and I really don't think I'm capable of doing an 8minute stretch.
My last run involved quite a big hill, and was really badly timed in that I got to the bottom of it just as my first 5m run started - awful timing! While I managed to keep going for two minutes or so, I had to slow down and walk, despite really hating myself for it, but knowing I simply couldnt have done it! I did 5mins later on, on the flat, but my that time I was exhausted and could barely put one foot in front of the other, let alone at any sort of reasonable pace.
I have had some aches and pains, mainly in my ankles, but this was also the first time I've had stitch which didnt help. ( I acutally blame Laura for this, as it started about 2 minutes after she started talking about it!)
I think I'm either looking for reassurance that its ok to re-do a week - or that my fears are unfounded and I'll sail through w4r3 and on to the next one (yeah, right!) I really dont want to be stuck doing 5mins for ever!
