Week 6 Day 3


I didn't end up doing the run with its usual day gap however I did still do it and my next available time (today)

calves a bit better although due to 2 times knee surgery etc I always have twangs (ops due to my love of netball)

I had to walk twice however I was on a treadmill so kept the walk speed at the same speed as I was jogging at so is this a fail? or a really jog :)

On a plus side the first 10 minutes I genuinely felt great and also managed to do a sprint finish

will see how I get on with the week7 day 1 then assess weather I need to go back

2 weeks until dirty dozen 6k obstacle race and at least I feel I can finish it now

  • No that's not a fail at all.

    Make sure you are working on your upper body strength as well though - that's going to be the critical thing at DD, more than your running.

  • Agreed! I've been doing the NHS 12 week fitness plan which incorporates strength and flexibility also been doing weights on the days rest from running.

  • Agree.. you NEVER really fail if you try.. and that certainly wasnt!! was merely a postponement ! ( we are always too hard on ourselves I think at times) good for you... well done!!
