Well yesterday saw me start week 3 of the programme. Been a bit cheaty but I have been able to pull it off so far.
When I say cheaty what I mean is I did week 1, and got struck down by flu\chest infection the very day I did it, so after 4 days in bed I went and did week 1 for a second time.
Having done week1 twice, I went onto week 2, which I ran twice and then stated week 3 which I must admit I should do 3 times.
The reason for the short cut is I have a 5-6k indurance race in about a months time 17th March, and quite honestly I need to have the ability to run most, if not all of the way.
Is this cheating? Is this wrong? Am I going to hrt myself?
So far, I have been able to progress easily, I have not injured myself and I feel great when I finish.
I run at 6am, on country roads, in the freezing cold. My lungs don't work so well when I begin, due to the reminants of the chest infection, and asthma. But it is brilliant, and at the moment I am really enjoying myself.
I used to weigh 20 stone and smoke around 20 a day, but now I'm 16 stone 10 and smoke free. the running is now definitely a joy.
