I still cannot believe that on 3 different days this week I ran for 16 minutes on each day. Yes they were broken down into two 3 minutes and two 5 minutes runs, but still.......
I am a little gobsmacked at one of my thoughts on the first five minute run tonight which was " done this on Sunday and Tuesday can do it again" and the BIGGY , NEXT RUN IS ONLY 3 MINUTES !!!!!!!!!!! what was I thinking !!!!!!!!! I can certainly recognise my thought pattern/process over the last few weeks. At this point my eyes were wide and I decided to look at the scenery and concentrate on my breathing. I also forgot how long 5 minutes is. I need to get into the mind-set that it is mostly jogging from here on in with limited walking ( I hope).
Plus out of my 3 runs only one was done early morning, two were done in the evening and dare I say it...... not so self conscious, although there were lots and I mean lots of people on the canal this evening I lost count of how many people were running (always faster then me and a lot younger), walking their dogs and on there bikes. I actually went where I thought there would be less people between the canal wharfs lol, o well.
What a difference four weeks has made to my confidence in believing that Yes I will be able to run for 30 minutes (snails pace), I am quite prepared that I may (pretty certain) have to redo certain weeks ( probably start with next week, with week 5) but Hay ho
Talking about week 5 I thought you could choose just one of the runs to do for the week lol, you know like weeks 1 to 4, good job I read these posts and the week by week instructions. Have now downloaded all 3 podcasts.
Thanks for the ramble
