Just finished week 2 run 1. Although it wasn't easy it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I had to repeat week 1. I was recovering from a cold. I thought about repeating week 1 until I could do it with ease. I am glad I pushed myself and moved on to week 2. The tip at the beginning of week 2 about the heels hitting the floor first might have helped me get through week 1 a bit better. I concentrated on doing this and although my shins are still sore they are not as bad as usual.
