Completed W5R1 this morning with not too much trouble. I definitely class myself as a jogger more than a runner. My issue is the 20 minute run on Friday assuming I get over the 8 minute runs on Wednesday. I did put a sneaky 6 min run/jog in at the end of today’s session so instead of doing 3 x 5 min runs I did 2 x 5 min runs and a final 6 min run instead of the 5 min one that the lovely Laura requested (sorry Laura).
Admittedly this was a late decision that I made during the final 5 min run today. I had been having this mental block since I started W1 that was telling me I couldn't run for longer than 5 mins (I read another runner on the forum had this issue) and that I would fail miserably when I was to try the 8 min on Fridays
So now I know I can at least run/jog for 6 mins and with this knowledge then on Wednesday I only have to run/jog for an additional 2 mins more
Not sure if there is any method to my madness but I think it works for me so I thought I'd pass it on.
Friday looks like a challenge.......8 mins to 20 mins........LAURA !!!!!!!!!!!!
