I finally did it! I completed week 3 and I really felt like I would have been able to run a little bit longer. So I'm excited for week 4! Bring it on!
I have a question though... What tips can you guys give about running in the cold? It's starting to get really cold down here in Australia and my last two runs were very uncomfortable especially to start out with. Although I felt that I was able to run further and longer than in previous weeks, my muscles were incredibly sore, especially my knees down to my ankles. I'm wearing 3/4 length running tights so I'm thinking it might just be too cold for my muscles to stay warm? Also I tried doing some extra warm up exercises before I left the house for my last run, and although it was slightly better, my body still felt a bit stiff and cold. My muscles only really felt warmed up by the the final run in each session.. Probably not good? Any tips?
Also thanks so much for everyone on this forum! Your encouragement and support is what really makes the possibility of actually reaching my goal, seem very possible! You guys are awesome
