Like most others before me, I felt a bit reticent about today's run. So much so that I enquired whether my mobile felt like doing it for me. Let me tell you that Cortana has quite a mouth on her!! (my company, in their wisdom, recently switched to Windows phones).
As to the run itself, the first couple of minutes didn't feel great but once I got into a rhythm, it was fine and I never felt like I was going to have to stop. If anything, I felt stronger at the end than I did at the start and would have gone a bit further if I hadn't already reached the end of my planned route.
Before this week, I hadn't ran non-stop for more than 5 mins (after which I was probably begging for a walking break). I am not quite sure how this program works but there has to be magic involved.
Up until now, lunchtime has been my preferred time for running but today's weather forecast showed 23C, I thought it better to avoid that so I went about 9:30 and really enjoyed the conditions even if I was a bit 'sticky' before my shower.
Week 6 starts on Friday, and as much as I enjoyed today, I am very much looking forward to my (few remaining) walking breaks.
