After graduating I decided to try & push the boundaries a bit. Followed advice I read here - thanks everyone - and had about 4 runs consolidating my ability to run for 30 mins without wheezing louder than the trains round here. So I moved on to using the stepping podcast - that was useful.
However I wanted to try for the 5k so on Friday took myself out a bit further, up the hill, past the river, up another hill (slowly!) and then ignored Laura and kept going till the tracker said 5k! Soooo pleased with myself although weary afterwards. Out to celebrate husband's recent birthday on Friday night (secretly I was celebrating my 5k 🍷🍷🍷!)
But today's run ....had a go at the speed podcast. Was ok with the interval running but Laura stops after about 20 mins. I wanted to keep going so did, but could not get much longer than 30 mins & 4 k this time. I know 11 weeks ago that seemed WOW 30 mins but felt a bit disappointed. Maybe trying to run with no music and no podcast didn't help? So yes, Laura, as usual you are right - not all runs feel good. Hubby can't understand my disappointment cos I completed the podcast, but 4K & 30 mins just didn't seem a good run any more😔 Anyone else recognise this?
