Hello all.... Well today's run was hard. I am staying at my brother's house for the weekend, which is in beautiful Gloucestershire. Stunning scenery and so on, but , omg, hills!
I started the walk, all good... Followed another runner when she turned left, on basis that she looked like she knew what she was doing.. until I reached a short but massively steep hill, right at the point where Laura said to run. So I ran, and I did get up it.. (I debated whether to just turn round to flatter ground but then thought it would flatten out at the top, ready for the 3minute run.)
Unfortunately, The ninety second walk wasn't enough to get my breath back really, and I had to stop mid way through the three mins ☹️ Just couldn't do it...and the hill, while flatter, was still on an incline...
So I walked to the end of the three mins, turned round" then fiddled about with my iPod to get back to the end of the ninety second walk, then ran (downhill) for the three mins, which I managed🙂 Then followed the rest of the podcast as normal... But on a flatter bit of road. The second 3 min run was ok, just about..
So...does this "count" for the purposes of following the program..?. I am back home tomorrow, so my next run will be my usual area (which is mainly flat!)
I think I'll see how the next two go and then maybe repeat once more... I found the longer run really hard, so running it an extra time will probably help anyway.
