I has just finished run 1 of week 3 and overall I would summarise it as challenging but manageable.
The first run of 90 seconds I set off as the same pace as the previous week, but during the 90 second walk I thought to myself there is no way I could maintain that pace for 3 minutes.
The dreaded 3 minute jog approaches and like what seems to be uttered a thousand times on here I slowed down. Guess what it was then manageable, my breathing was good and I was a little conscious I was bouncing. So far so good!
Then comes the tale of the second half! Though I won't be too disheartened as I place most of this on the fact I was now running back up the hill I had just slowly went down (I just moved to the midlands and basically use to live in one of the flattest parts of the U.K so any incline is a hill to me!). The 90 seconds were a struggle up the steepest part but I got there.
Come around to the second 3 minutes and I will admit my breathing went to pot (to put it nicely) and when she said there was a minute left it felt like the longest minute of my life!
All this being said, I did not hate it!! I'm glad I've got it done and I am currently working towards the target that if I finish week 4 I'll treat myself to a Fitbit.
