W6 R2 today, considered going outside, shivered as I dropped my daughter at the gym and decided to go for treadmill. Thought this would be interesting as if you follow me right back to the beginning I was treadmill only then got the outside bug after I got over my fear of what others might think.
W6 R2 is 2 x 10 mins and I would say I managed it in relative comfort - I even turned the speed up slightly in the last minute. The main thing was I felt a bit bored with the treadmill TV on subtitles, Trumped out on BBC News Channel, and I felt like the second ten minutes took ages. But I felt my stride pattern develop, I felt my breathing get a rhythm and I realised how far I had come. In early Sept I struggled with Week 4 and that seems so long ago. I remember being very down about it and so many of you said 'keep going, call it a practise run and you WILL get there' and here's me now having done twenty mins continuously in W5 and intervals again in W6. I believe I soon could enter a 5K!
I am still around about the same weight (i.e. heavy) because I don't think I have quite yet got the hang on doing the eating and running thing in tandem, e.g. I lost 7lb over two weeks when I was ill then looked at food and put 2lb back on.
Although I sometimes struggle with 3x in one week I am more like 3x in 8-9 days, I am still moving on up.....thank you for ALL your support thus far xxx
