I had a blip in that my week 4 was disrupted by a ridiculously hectic business trip to Scandinavia where I was unable to run, so having done week 4 run 1, I started week 4 all over again and did it OK. Saturday's Week 4 run 3 was tough - i'd had a lot of sugar the night before (usually for me).
I was really apprehensive about week 5 - but once I got out there this morning the 3x5min intervals were just about manageable. What I am dreading are runs 2 & 3 where you do 2x 8 mins and 1x20 min.
How have others got over the fear of this? Is it all in my mind? What can I do to trust and believe that I can do it?
I know that I am getting fitter as my breathing is easier to manage and my heart rate is topping out at about 154 (was going to 160) and my recovery is better.
I know, i know, I'll be told "trust the program", but I am full of fear that I cannot do this week. HELP!
Thanks a lot - Barry
