Just back from my run, can't believe I am on week 6 though, time has gone so fast! 2 x 10 minute runs was ok because I took it slow and steady and have found a big playing field with 2 levels so can run 10 on the top and 10 on the bottom.
Surprised that I am now able to cope with a small hill too without crippling pain in my calves. When the pain comes, I consciously relax my calves and the pain seems to go more quickly and that is helping a lot.
Two large dogs decided I was mildly interesting, after they had chased a squirrel, I was the only moving object on the field, they could have outrun me ten times over, the owner said they never tire, unlike me!
Now all I have to do is a 25 minute run on Friday and feels like the home run to week 9!
Home now and a little weary but notice I recover reasonably quickly and will try to resist the urge to power nap today. Bit frustrated that this week despite eating well, have not even lost one pound, so glad I have my fitness to distract me from scale obsessions!
