I wasn't looking forward to this week, I even put it off yesterday as I didn't feel like a 3 minute run was within me yet. I'd even misunderstood the order of walks and runs so it was a good job I have the app or I'd have done 90sec run/90 sec walk x2 and THEN 3 mins run/3mins walk x 2.
But I did it the apps way obviously (rather than just reading from paper) and I was quite surprised with myself. I found the first 90 second run a breeze, and I even got through the first 3 minute run with relative ease. I was sweating a bit by the end of the second 3 minute run but I had extra in me and decided to do 3 minutes walking and an EXTRA 3minutes running.
When you consider my anxiety had started to gnaw away at me about whether I was fit enough for the 3 minute aspect, I pushed past the anxiousness and went at it with a 'anything is better than nothing' attitude and surpassed my expectations by completing the extra 3 minute run.
The moral of the story is, if you're looking at the program on paper and feel daunted... DON'T BE. You'll be surprised at yourself. I felt a bit too jaded to do it yesterday after 2 days rest so I took the extra days recovery and it's made the difference. Also, don't think of it as 3 minutes, think of it as one average song length
(TIP: Don't have more than 3 days between weeks, 2 is best, 3 if you're really tired)
