Just completed the last run of week 7 and feeling good about it. I still had some way to go to get back home at the end of the run so, after walking for 5 mins, I picked up the pace and ran for another 10.
I was just wondering whether my stamina and conditioning would have been better improved had I just continued without taking the 5 minute warm down walk at the end of the podcast? What I did notice was that this second run was much much easier than the first 10 mins of the final week 7 run.
I have heard about this 'toxic ten' symptoms but the difference was so huge for me that I am just wondering if I warmed up correctly?
