After doing the dreaded twenty minute run last week and having 4 rest days (!!!) I set out last night to start week 6 feeling a bit apprehensive as I'd been reading it was a tough week.
Well I did the first five minutes and after about a minute rest I was already set to go onto the eight minutes. I stuck to the programme which is a good job really because I thought I hadn't set my timer for the eight minutes it seemed to be going on for so long! But I finished it and on I went to the five minute run which happened to start in the same place as the week 4 five minute run and I was doing so well and going so fast I ended up farther away from home than I wanted to be. Bear in mind my first five minute run had me almost crying in pain because of a massive stitch that had developed and how tired I was but this time I was flying down the road. Onto run two tomorrow then that's it with the intervals so I certainly hope my body is ready for them because mentally I'm prepared but I'm not quite sure what my legs would say if they knew what was in store!
