Week 4 completed!

Just done my second time around for week 4 and now have a target to aim for :)

As I use the awesome Runtastic app. after starting week 3 I realised I was already getting close to hitting the 5k mark, I did my longest run of 4.77 km. I decided to keep walking until I hit the 5k and see what time I did it in and managed it in 40 mins and 1 second, so I then had a new goal.

In my last run, I got it down to 38 mine 37 seconds and the knowledge that I'd shaved it down felt great! :D

I know it's not about speed and I'm not trying to cut it down a huge amount each time but the fact that I'm slowly cutting the time down is a great motivator for me and I love it!

Hopefully, as I move up to longer runs, I will be shortening my times further, so wish my luck! :D

  • don't get to caught up in the stats to much, yes they are a guideline but in reality all you need to do is to complete the timed runs no matter how far or fast you run ...

  • Well done on completing week 4. It's always good to have something that motivates you though don't get too hung up on your times ;)

  • I'm not too hung up on the times, honestly. It's just nice to have a target that I can look at at see some progress. :)
