Wk6 R2

Phew, that was a hard run, and not even the long one! got through it though, don't know why it was hard, it was when Laura said 'you can run faster' in the second run, I just thought, 'no way!'. I think it was because I was wearing this nice long sleeved top, bit of wool in it, and it was a bit warm. I almost took it off, but I didn't want to horrify the neighbours :D

I think, following OldPossums post, that it's an excuse to get some new stuff :P

  • Do it - it makes so much sense. I ran in linen trousers until the Lidl sale and my nice new leggings are so much easier. A couple of people recently have mentioned that the rule of thumb is to dress as if it's 10 degrees hotter than it actually is. Might make it a bit chilly when you start but it's so much nicer during the run.

  • That's good advice, Pollyp1. I don't think I drank enough water, either. Feel better now.

  • Yay! (just regurgitating other people's advice but, yes, it is)

  • But you did it! Well done.

  • Well done - I found week 6 Runs 1&2 both hard but you did it :-)

  • yep - runs 1 + 2 for week 6 are notorious for being difficult after the euphoria of the previous week! well done for completing it. If you can I would recommend getting lighter running clothes - it will make such a difference!

  • Thanks, Lina, I will. It's all mental, isn't it! Wk6 R1&R2 seem as if they'd be a doddle after a 20min run, but we still need that building up of stamina. Thanks for replying to me, guys :D

  • w6r3 might seem like sweet relief :)

  • Hmmmm... I did the US version of C25K and while I knew there were differences I did not know until now that you got 'specific' instructions. Basically all 'my' Laura would do was mark the time, say a few encouraging phrases every now and then and tell me when to start and stop.

    I don't think I would have been able to adapt my running to 'interruptions and instructions' like you describe. Basically I just put one foot in front of the other every time and slowed down as necessary. I guess different routes but same journey. :)

  • Well...it was optional to speed up a little,if you wanted to. It just reawakened the gremlins. I think your right, simple is always best :)
