So I just got in from my 2nd run of week 6 and I wanted to jump straight on here. This week seems to be REALLY tough. Firstly, I have to reassure myself that I'm not doing too badly, as I am still managing to complete the running sections, but the runs have been trickier; my legs feel heavy and tired, my breathing is all out of sync and I begin to feel defeated before I even reach the halfway mark. Run 1 - I think I was a little too 'enthusiastic' and set off on my 5 mins far too quickly (my brain said, 5 mins? my last run was 20 mins so this should be easy!!) and paid for it throughout the 8 min and 5 min run still left to do! I learnt from this and set off really slowly and steadily for the first 10 minutes today. I was really struggling before Laura said I was halfway and I just can't work out why. As I finished the runs, I intend to head out and do Run 3 on Friday and hope that it feels better than today. Right now, I'm a little confused as to what my body is playing at!!
