Just back from W6R3.
I started with mixed feelings. .....Maybe I can, .....maybe I can't....... In the end I could. I found it hard. 25 minutes! Who would have thought? Now and again I was flagging and needed to have a talk to myself!
I have also changed my posture. Watching another runner who was holding her body erect, I decided to do the same without swivelling my torso from left to right. Same with the arms position. Laura had explained the best body posture but it was hard for me to concentrate on all those aspects when I was just trying to get my feet forward without dying.
Although it has been hard, I am surprised how easy it has all been. To get me to run for one minute, let alone 25 minutes was just an impossibility a few months ago. I have followed you guys advices and decided not to redo week 5 but carry on to week 6. Thanks for this. Laura is now saying I can consider myself a runner !!!
My new hurdle now is that I have to present myself to the hospital shortly for an op and will not be able to run for a few weeks. I suppose will have to restart with shorter runs to get back to week 6.
Still, week6R3, wow, I did it !
Have a great run time for the next few weeks. I envy you
