I finished the first run of week 6 about an hour ago.
The podcast says at the end that it's common for people to find this run harder even after W5R3 aka 20 minute run.
I could have carried on with the 20 minute run, but with today's I got back, started to cook, and just lay on the floor whilst my food cooked I personally think that for me, it's because the podcast voice, Laura, always says "go steady, don't go too fast", so that's exactly what I did - focused on getting those runs done rather than focusing on pace.
But that 20 minute run gave me the confidence to up my pace, and boy did it kill me, aha. I finished all the runs so I'll be progressing, and I maintained a faster pace for the first 5 minute run and 8 minute run. But slowed it down on the final 5 minute run.
How did you guys find it? If you found it harder, similar or easier than week 5, why do you think that is?
