Sounds like a really active day! Don't forget that the programme is to an extent self adminstered, so if YOU want to designate that as W1R2 then do so. The programme is designed to help you get fit and achieve 30min of continuous running. It seems to me that the exercise you have done is a step towards that goal. Try the next run proper and see how easy it is. You might find you need to do it again anyway. Let us know how you get on.


Sounds very civilised to me! It counts, I'm sure it counts! :)

Thanks for all the votes of "Success" !!

As I am MAINLY doing the program

to be able to run OVER 5min,

this REALLY does NOT Count !!

BTW - Now: at 3rd day after, and Counting !!

>>Even IF I DID manage A 90s SPRINT,

Then was COMPLETELY Exhausted !!

(Better than Nothing, but not by much !!)
