Couch to 5K

No more walk breaks :/

Just finished week 6 run 2! I loved the first 10 minutes - part of me wished that I hadn't stopped for the 3 minutes (although I did end up running an extra minute to get to a decent path) but when I think about the next run I get a bit terrified!

The last 5 minutes were a struggle, had to have a word with myself (and my calf muscle) but all in all very pleased I did it. I said to myself at the start that I'd just try this one and if I found it too hot then I'd give myself a break and just walk the route instead, but I didn't need to!

Happy running all :)
