Chilly evening, but thankfully dry by the time I got outdoors. I expected the 3 then 5 minute runs with reduced recovery time to be problematic, but weirdly I seemed to get on better than I did when I started week 3. Could it be I'm actually getting a wee bit fitter? Surely not My legs felt a bit heavy around two minutes into the final run, but, determined to never walk when I should be running I plodded on and made it to the end. 4.3k covered in 35 mins (I didn't turn off Nike+ until I got home so a little extra time was added.)
Amusingly (to me anyway), I found myself in conversation with Laura early on, it went something like this:
End of 90 second recovery after first 3 minute run:
Laura: "How are you feeling?"
Me: "Like crap"
Laura: "Hope you're feeling good because you've got a 5 minute run coming up"
Me: "Just let me die now"
Midway through that first 5 minute run:
Laura: "Well done, you've done 2 1/2 minutes and you're doing really well"
Me: "ONLY HALF WAY! ARE YOU COMPLETELY MAD WOMAN!"
Maybe you had to be there
We reconciled soon after and I love her again.
Good luck all, Steve
