Well. I thought I'd give it a go... I started poorly. Still have bad cough. So I ran for around 2 mins and had to stop. I had a minute rest and started the run from the beginning. (technically I did 2 mins + 8 mins. I cramped up a few steps from the top of my nemesis hill! so I got to the top took a few steps and continued the run. My first run is slow. Much slower than when I first did C25K. But I guess I'm doing it! My second 8 min run... Much faster, covered the ground of my first run and the walk between the runs.
I'm a bit happier about it now but I feel like I'm setting myself up to fail with this route. The problem is I haven't been enjoying the program until I found this route. It makes me happy.
And today.... I was followed by a bird of prey. I think it was a Buzzard but It was too high and in shadow to tell really. You don't get that on the roadside much. He was behind me on the way up and in front of me on the way down and even crossed the path I was on just before I finished my warm down.
Also... any advice on cramp?
