At the end of every podcast Laura says that if I have any questions, I should just refer to the NHS website.Which is how I eventually after 6 weeks discovered this forum...my new favourite place to be, by the way.
I also midway through my week 7 discovered that the plan is set out on the website and to be honest, had I seen what was awaiting me at the end of week 5 I probably would have been discouraged by the 20 minutes of running and I would have given up. Because how on earth does one go from running for 8 minute intervals to 20 minutes. Insane right?
I am so greatful that I only came across it when I was at the "running only" stage of the plan.
I remember my Week 5 Day 3 while I was doing my warm up walk at a parkrun of all places. And I'd pay to see what my facial expression was in reaction to Laura saying I'll be running for 20 minutes. But it went OK, and I felt brilliant afterwards.
If you've already seen the plan, then that's OK. Forewarned is forearmed, right? But whatever you do, don't let the longer runs discourage you. You're brilliant!
Go for it!
