Well I am still feeling all fired up and enthusiastic, and have completed week 1 all ok. On Sunday I did w2r1, and while it was harder, I managed it fine and felt really good.
So this afternoon after work I did w2r2. Same route as Sunday, but my goodness I struggled. I felt so out of breath and a lot thirstier - I haven't needed to carry a drink with me up until now. The last run I was literally waiting for Laura to tell me to stop, and it was the only time I have been sorely tempted to stop before she told me (I didn't, but felt like it!)
So, does anyone have any ideas why I found this run at the same level harder? I was expecting to feel better after each run, but is that wrong? I did start trying to focus on breathing properly, so maybe that made it harder?
As I say, I'm still really enjoying all this though - cautiously looking forward to next run on Friday
