After run 3 of week 3 I was apprehensive about starting week four, Almost twice the amount of running!!!! Anyway after a disturbed sleep last night I was not sure if I would get up for a run but the alarm went off at 5.30 and dragged myself out of bed about 6 and went out.
The first 3 minute run went well, legs a little heavy but I put that down to the 2 days rest I take (I go out Monday, Wednesday and Friday) Then came the first 5 minute run, slow and steady said Laura and I was happy to oblige. I checked the starting point and off I went. I was delighted to do one circuit of the park (about half kilometre) without stopping. The next 3 min run went without hiccup, if anything my legs felt better jogging than walking. Then Laura said the last 5 min run - already I said - so off we went, nice and steady. Starting to flag now and when Laura said your half way through I said are you sure!!!!!
So I dug deep, thought about all the words of encouragement on this forum and kept going and finished without stopping. I was worn out, breathless but thrilled to do it - easier than I thought but lets not get too cocky we will see how Wednesday goes.
Thank you for your support
