Week 2 Done!

Well, that wasn't as bad as I thought it could've been. Panic set in a little bit when I had a phone call about 2/3rds of the way into the first run, "Are you busy?" asked the caller, "I'm just running, I'll be done in a few seconds" I replied as I gasped for breath. Then I managed to sustain the conversation through the 2 minute walk & the entire of the next run. I dread to think what I sounded like on the other end of the phone though....

I dragged a work friend out with me today & we followed the same route that I'd run on Sunday as I wanted to test the accuracy of one app against another. On Sunday, Nike + reckoned I did 4.03Km in 29:53 & today Map My Run reckoned 4.02Km in 29:30. Both were for the whole podcast (including warm up & cool down) so I'm dead chuffed with that, 5Km may not be out of my grasp after all.

Roll on week 3!

I'd turn your phone off and concentrate on what Laura has to say. You don't want to miss anything

Glad you're enjoying it. It's good isn't it!


I need my phone on to track my distance though, I might have to put it on "Do not Disturb" for the half an hour. No way I;ll be able to hold a conversation when I'm running for longer, lol!


Well done on completing week 2. You seem to be doing very well distance wise. Good luck with week 3 and best wishes.


You don't need to worry about logging distance at this point. Completing the podcast is what matters

I know it's nice to know how far and how fast but you can get too caught up in it. You're on week 2 so plenty of time to worry about times and speeds after Graduation
