Well completed Wk7 R2 in 24 degs of beautiful english sunshine but boy oh boy it was hard (and sweaty) !!
I did change my route this time though as advised by Laura and it made a lot of difference. The slopes I ran down before were now little hills BUT the hills became slopes this time so it made a great change.
Had to really grit my teeth in the first 5 minutes where everything in my body shouts "urggh you're not gonna do it - This hurts -Just stop!" but I really try hard to not listen and just crack on (knowing that i have got through it before helps). Once I get through that I usually get a wobble just before half way when I am BEGGING Laura to chip in and confirm only 12.5 minutes to go
After that I am so determined NOT to stop and ruin the good 12.5 mins I have out in so it kinda carries me through. Even if I sometimes have to drop the pace) It really isn't easy but its sooo worth it when you can finally stop having completed the full 25 mins. Still like most things its not worth having if its easy to achieve is it??.
I'm determined to complete this programme and graduate and really love this forum as its so positive! My routine is always to log on about half an hour before I run to read everyone's inspirational words as it spurs me on tokeep going and join you all on this running journey we call C25K..
All the best to everyone and onwards to WK7 R3 - Whoop!! .xx
