I am new here. I have done week 1 twice and although I managed it both times, I am always out of breath and can't wait for the walking parts. I am going to attempt week 2 on Friday, but I am dreading it. However, if I know I have to run for a longer time I might psych myself up for it. I suppose it's like when you are desperate for a wee and the closer you get to the bathroom the worse the feeling gets. The closer I get to a minute of running the more tired I get, but if I know I have to run for a minute and a half I might manage it. We will see! I am living in the Cayman Islands too, which doesn't help because the humidity is high and the heat is terrible so I am running around a tennis court when it's dark. I will move to a running track once my runs become a bit longer. By the way who's Laura that everyone keeps thanking?
