Week 4 r2, ipod troubles!

After doing my 5 min walk today I soon realised that I hadn't put the ipod back to wk 4 for my second run and had gone on to wk 5 run1... so I just went with it and did it!! Yeah! Think that I will do it again to build up the stamina before going to the run2 but I am feeling so pleased ;-) Enjoying the simple things in life at the moment!

Great stuff!

Do watch out that you don't go too hard too fast because your body needs time to adapt to the new stresses of running regularly. I would suggest that you carry on from where you would have been, but knowing that you can do a run from further ahead suggests you have been making great progress and will have no trouble when you get on to next week.

Be pleased - you did great - but don't push so hard that you get injured! The injury couch is a frustrating place to be.

Happy running!

Thanks Ugi, good advice!


I did exactly the same thing yesterday - accidentally started out on W4 instead of my last W3 run - and it was starting to get dark, so I just kept on with it. Figure I can always do an extra W4 run to keep the build-up in running time slow.
