Completed last night Didn't particularly enjoy it but it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be.
The achy legs kicked in as soon as I finished the first 3 min run. My Mum came with me as I previously mentioned & at 9stone wet through she has less weight to carry & is much fitter than me, so off she went & just kept jogging on the spot while I caught up. Not great for my motivation but hey ho.
Anyway I was telling her about my achy legs & she said maybe you're running too slow. She honestly just couldn't run as slow as I was doing. Now of course all I have in my head is slow & steady but I thought why not try going just a bit faster whilst I was doing the first 5 min run & hey presto the achy legs weren't nearly as achy!!!
Yes I was more out of breath but I seem to be controlling my breathing ok so I wasn't worried about that but it felt so much better on the second lot of runs with my legs not aching as much.
R3 tomorrow instead of Sunday this week as our plans for the weekend have changed so will try that bit faster & see how I go
Fingers crossed & good luck everyone x
