I'm now doing week 8 so I'm nearly there! I was repeating Wk 7 to give my knees time to get used to a longer run and running on pavement (no more running in a nature reserve - pitchy black!) and when I was running Wk 7 the other night I felt really good so carried on for a further 3 minutes - felt great! Hooray, I thought I'm on Week 8. Well, did another Week 8 run this morning but not so good, found it really hard. I think I made the mistake of going out on an empty stomach (before breakfast). I run at different times - once in the evening (when daughter is at ballet class), once on a Saturday lunchtime (ditto the ballet class) and once on a Thursday morning. I did complete the run (with a brief stop to wait to cross a busy road) but it was nowhere near as good as Monday evening. Perhaps I am just not a morning person? How have other people found this? I have run straight after breakfast as well but a bowl of cereal sloshing round my stomach was not really nice!! Perhaps just a banana next time - any suggestions?
