Wk 7 R 2

Week 7 Run 2 in the bag, done and dusted and happy that I completed another 25 minute run without stopping. Only complaint I have is that at a minute to go when Laura encourages you to speed up if possible I find that the last minute feels like 4! Must actually check it is only a minute and not being duped ;-). Look forward to Saturday for run 3 and then onto week 8. I still can't believe that I am actually running (ok a slow jog) it!

Are you speeding up then as per Laura's encouragement? I was never able and just plodded on. It matters not, you get there just the same. If you can speed up and have a little dash at the end that would be great.

Going slowly is fine, and will get you round safe and sound


Well it is literally in the last minute that I try to speed up a fraction not that it makes much of a difference, but in my own little world it does!


I noticed that Laura's timings are not all that precise too.

I have visions of her stuffing her face with cake whilst voicing those podcasts and that is how "one minute" seems to last at least two.

W7R3 was my most satisfying run so far, hope it is for you too!
