I did week 6 run 3 last sunday and then didn't have any motivation for any further runs all week. There was mild illness and bad weather but really just a load of excuses. Tonight I forced myself out for week 7 run 1 and though I found it hard to begin with, I felt okish at the end so when Laura said I could finish I carried on running through the 5 minute warm down walk. So I did 30 minutes for the first time (quiet woop!)
I did it because I know I am nowhere near 5 k at 30 minutes and I have to work on acheiving that distance. Also these last 3 weeks don't seem like much progress, just improving by 5 minutes over 3 weeks. Also I felt guilty about my week long gap for no good reason.
I do have jelly legs but I'm ok. I'm worried that, as the program is carefully designed, I have scuppered my chances for progress or offended the god of jogging or something. Can I have some advice please from people who have run extra at the end, would you recommend it or stear clear?
