Week 6 completed

Hi everybody,

Well that's week 6 completed this morning.

For some reason W6R1 was the hardest for me, I felt like it was harder than I was expecting considering the run before it was 20 minutes straight.

W6R2 went ok and my Fitbit said my best time for a km was 6 mins 50 seconds which I felt quite happy with. I seem to be a averaging between 4.6 - 4.7 kms per run at the moment (including my warm up and cool down walks). Not the fastest or longest but it's nice to know what I'm doing so I can see when I get faster or go a longer distance.

So up at 6am this morning with a cup of tea and a small bowl of bran flakes. I left it an hour to digest and started W7R3 at 7am.

As I've seen others post I found the first 10 minutes the hardest, then I seemed to settle into a nice run. At around the 15 minute mark I noticed a slight pain in my groin but not bad enough to slow down or stop.

Then before I knew it there was only 60 seconds to go and I found I had enough energy left to up my pace a bit.

I'm really pleased with my progress so far and I'm amazed I can run for 25 minutes without stopping.

I'm off on holiday tomorrow and stopping at Morpeth Castle for the week so I'm looking forward to a few runs somewhere new and hopefully scenic.

Roll on W7 I say

Bob

  • Well done on completing another week - I'm at the same stage. The weeks are just flying by aren't they! Morpeth a Castle sounds scenic, enjoy!

  • Only three weeks left eh.

    My Mrs asked me what I was going to do to treat myself on completion of W9. I haven't thought about it to be honest.

  • Yay, well done! A lot of us have found week 6 to be really tough. Enjoy your holiday and good luck with the rest of the plan :)

  • Thanks Yamiskoi

  • Wow.. go you.. and a Fitbit and a castle... how swanky is that :) ?

    Take it slow and steady and don't push yourself too hard at this stage...but then, my mantra is slow and steady for all my runs :)

    Enjoy your scenic routes and those wonderful Northumbrian skies!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Thanks Floss, I can't wait to go!
