Just completed my first run and I really surprised myself! I thought I'd only be able to do 30 seconds instead of the 60 but I took the advice from everyone about going slow and steady. I didn't speed up from my brisk pace walk, I just switched into jogging at the same pace. At first I thought I was cheating and my instinct was to jog faster. However the music managed to keep me in check. Before I knew it. 8mins of running done!
I do wonder though about heart rate in general. Mine got up to 178 towards the end but I doubt it will lower much in 2 runs time. Should I repeat week one until my heart rate lowers enough to tackle week 2? Or should I just try week 2 next week anyway??
Overall I'm pretty pleased I managed to complete it
