Morning all, completed W7R1 last night with my friend although I didn't do it as per Laura & the app. I actually ran form 40 mins non stop & finally hit 3 mile with a 13.06 minute mile in there. I started at 18.9 minute miles so I'm over the moon with that although obviously that included walking.
It was a completely different route to usual, one which requires someone to collect you afterwards (at this stage anyway) as you're 3 miles from home with a huuuuuge uphill to get you back. I ran this route just before starting C25K with my friend & it was really bad & took a good hour+ with lots of walking so we both wanted to see how far I've come in 7 weeks & I was absolutely amazed, as was she
The first 20 mins are downhill so it was pretty easy then as I got onto the straight it's mostly small uphills, flats, uphills again with a small downhill toward the end giving just enough time to get your breath back ready for the final flat.
My legs were like jelly after but I felt absolutely amazing & really enjoyed the run.
Back to 25 minutes tomorrow & normal route I think as I'll be out on my own again.
Good luck all running this week xx
