W6 r2 comfortable

For the first time ever I felt comfortable throughout my whole run! I have a sneaky suspicion that I ran for more than 10 minutes in the first run. I normally follow the same route, and when I got to where my usually 10 minute marker was I was told I was only half way, so I ran on for another five minutes. I don't know of the app paused when I went to my iTunes library to change my music. Anyway, regardless, I've either completed it or completed it with a few extra minutes thrown in. Didn't seem to have any breathing problems today and my legs felt felt very fresh. Hadn't run since Monday, so that might be it. Next run on Monday is with my club and they are tackling the 20 minute run of week 5, even though they'll be on week 7. It's slightly confusing run the same programme two different ways but I'm enjoying it.

Beautiful weather as well today!

  • Seems like things are coming together nicely. W6R2 was easily my worst run of the program so it's good to hear of someone nailing it. Well done.

  • I had some issues with the app too and Laura made me run longer on several occasions. not a problem though if you are coping well. Well done!

  • Sounds like you're really getting the hang of it and benefitted from the extra days of rest. Well done.

  • I ran that same run yesterday and i think it was probably my best run yet. I felt i found my rhythm.

    With regards to the app i had all sorts of problems like that at the beginning so i changed to the podcasts and haven't had a problem since.

  • I usually use the podcast. Just fancied listening to my own music this time!
