I've replied to a few posts here since I began the programme, but I've never put my own one up. I'm just back from my second attempt at w8r1.
I first tried it on Tuesday, having done the 25 min no probs on Sunday, but the heat and it being after work just stopped me in my tracks, and I only managed 15 minutes before I thought I might die!! I felt dreadful for the whole evening, so the message I took was I cant run in heat.... Holy mamma, I stayed red for about 4 hours!
So I've been waiting for a cooler opportunity to try again, and that came this morning! I set off, as usual in a wobbly slow shuffle, and went my normal route, adding a little loop to the start to try and encompass the extra 3 mins. Towards the end, I felt I was near the 1 minute warning ( sweet Jesus, how much do I look forward to that?, ) when my phone just stopped working! No music, no voice in my ear to reassure me! I carried on in silence until I thought I'd done enough, then walked home. It's weird hearing how much I puff and pant!!
So I hope I've done it. I mapped it at just over 4 k, so it will have to do either way....
By the way, am I the boy one who still feels completely out of breath etc at this stage. All these posts about finding a rhythm etc scare me! I'm still a wobble shuffle red tomato!!
Much love to everyone.... I love his forum!
