Went out early doors for my 25 minute run this morning. It was just getting light and just a few dog walkers about.
It was tough! I live in Yorkshire and there are hills at every turn. I try to pick as flat a route as possible but slight inclines are impossible to avoid and today my legs were like lead and those inclines felt like Everest!
After seeing JayseeSkinny's post I had a go at runkeeper today, I know speed and distance aren't important at this stage but I was curious. I only mapped the run not the warm up / down. My distance was 3.7km and my average pace was 6.55 mins per km.
I'm chuffed I did it but I don't feel as elated as I did after the 20 minute run because this one really felt like a chore! I don't want running to be a chore. I want it to be my 30 minutes of me time! Feeling apprehensive that weeks 7, 8 and 9 won't be enjoyable 😕
