Week 2, run 2 - KBO

Pros and cons tonight, but more pros I think.


1. I did it, and slightly quicker door to door than Monday.

2. The 4th, 5th and 6th of the 90 second runs felt more comfortable than the 1st, 2nd and 3rd (as they did on Monday too).

3. My calves aren't as tight tonight as they have been on other nights.

4. My recovery time once home is getting shorter.


1. 90 seconds of continuous running really does feel like my limit (but I guess that's why the programme's designed this way).

2. Whatever fool planned my route has it take me right past the chippie.

3. I've still got my moobs.

Patience! Don't worry about pace at the moment, stamina is more important - trust in Laura, she's a wise bird! I found after the first 4 weeks the aches and pains eased as my body stopped objecting to the strange demands on it. Sounds like you are feeling the benefits already, and you will be fleet enough to sail speedily past that inconvenient chippy :-D Happy running.


Ha ha ! :-D

Step away from the chippy Cookie !

You can always treat yourself though on your Graduation run , now theres an incentive !

You will be surprised at what you can achieve as you progress through the programme and you get stronger . You can do this ,just take it slow and steady, its just a gentle jog .

Well done for tonight, youre up and running now.

Youre doing great, keep going ! :-) xxx


Great post, thank you for sharing 😀


Agree the latter runs feel better guess we are warmed up or something , I just finished week 2 today and it felt good very comfortable ,because I thought 90 sec was pushing me today I covered more ground and still felt comfortable in fact on my last run I pushed it a little faster. Also on the walks I kept a good pace as I found myself strolling after the runs recovering , not now we'll do this


Chippie avoidance... good!

Very well done.. you are out there and getting stronger...!
