The first run in week 2, has been my worst. It was a struggle, but I got there... just. I feel and look like a sweaty pink blob. And to make matters worse, immediately after my brisk 5 min walk cooling down, I threw up. Has this happened to anyone else? It was really embarrassing, as people were around and looking at me, probably thinking she should not be running her fat butt anywhere.
I handled week 1's runs okay, I felt after each run I was feeling better quicker and this really motivated me to carry on, especially when you can notice and feel the benefit.
Maybe I'm coming down with something, although aside from feeling hot, sweaty and in need of a shower I feel fine. I left around 1 and a half hours between breakfast and the run, which is what i did for week 1. I'm tempted to skip breakfast before my 2nd run this week, but I'm not sure I should do that either? I'm dreading my 2nd run this week.
I've just done run 2 week 2. I am also a sweaty pink blob who has not run since being forced to at school which is too many years ago to mention! The mistake i made week 1 was trying to run too fast in the jogging sections. Week 2 i've slowed down the running telling myself I need to try and run at a pace that I can keep up for 30 mins eventually!! Don't know if this helps but hope you feel better soon and are able to keep to the programme.
