eeek about to start week 3!

Morning all!

Tonight I start week 3 run 1 and I was nervous after finishing week 2, but now I am excited. Even the pain in my knees is feeling much better today. Must be a sign!

How did everyone else feel at the start of week 3? xx

I am starting week 3 tomorrow and dreading it as for some reason I struggled yesterday with week 2 run3 but I will go slowly and hopefully get throughit!

I'm in transition from W3 to W4 and I think every changeover is met with a mix of dread & excitement. So far (touch wood) R1 has been a positive relief, R2 more enjoyable & R3 almost a joy! mixed with nerves for the step up a week. I also think my pace has slowed as the runs have lengthened which makes sense. Knee discomfort eased here too :-)
