I don't post here very much but thought I would share my recent experiences.
Week 7 was an enjoyable week and the Week 8 Run 1 was a pleasant surprise and my minute/miles increased too without me feeling too exhausted. However, week 8 run 2 was horrendous. I really struggled and almost slowed to a walk so ran for 29 minutes to make up for that. Run 3 wasn't much better until about 3/4 of the way through, at 28 minutes I had ran for 2.5 miles so decided to just continue for another half a mile and surprised myself by doing it and in 34 mins 7 seconds. Which I was quite pleased with.
I know that I have jumped a little ahead but felt like I could and glad I did as I feel I can maybe start to do ParkRun.
This site has been great for keeping me motivated. Still have week 9 to do but I'm sure I will be able to push myself on.
