Ha! Bet that title is confusing.
So this week I have run 3 times (W6 R3 last Saturday) and should be out today but a little interruption came along, that affects the female of the species, if you get my drift.
I posted elsewhere on someone else's timeline that I had a go at W7 R1 inside on a treadmill given that we are in the middle of about 7 days of -3 daytime temps and quite frankly I just want to hug a blanket all day long. I am always cold.
I got quite bored and hot - but I did manage to get to 22 mins - I had forgotten my iPhone so I just timed 25 mins on the treadmill after a 5 min warm up with the radio on (I had remembered my earphones) but I really REALLY missed Laura. Think that threw me. I was tired and hadn't got water and got too warm. But I still 96% managed it so I was full of hope for Thursday.
On Thursday it was beautiful, crisp, ice cold (-4 degrees at 0930) and I made up a new route through my favourite park and I managed the 25 mins fairly easily although try as I might, I couldn't go that faster in my last minute as Laura exhorts us to. Hence calling this post W7 R1 x 2 - I am going to count Monday's slightly short W7 R1 as a practice and Thursday's as the proper W7 R1.
I am getting really worried about my slow speed and stride. I know you say I shouldn't but if I am outside tracking myself on MapMyRun I am barely making 3km on 25 mins, which means that I will hardly make 3.5km on 30 mins continuous running which is MILES off 5K...which means I feel I can never do a parkrun or 5k race....
I'm going down the slippery slope called doubt.
I know now I will be able to jog slowly for 30 mins continuously but not do distances.
