Wk3 - easier than I anticipated!

Despite the rain which wasn't forecast when I checked last night.. Week 3 Run 1 was easily doable which surprised me. The first run was uphill and a slight shock to the system after not running for 3 days but it was within my capacity. Altered route slightly to avoid a bigger uphill section and easily completed the lot. I did a little bit more running after the cool down bit as I still had to get home and was getting cold but felt like I could do more anyway.

Enjoying this in a weird way!

  • Well done.. so important to have that little bit left.. as Laura says in the podcasts..... finish in style ! Onward and upward!!!

  • I just wish I'd tried this years ago, the programme really makes it achievable building up like this compared to my failed attempts on my own in the past.

  • Well done KS69 😊

    Yes, the plan is brilliant, its challenging but totally doable and each run builds to the next. Go you onwards and upwards.x

  • At this stage don't do more!

  • That is the temptation, I really want to run again tomorrow but know I shouldn't..

  • Well done :D sounds like you had a good run. I know what you mean about feeling you can do more but at the moment we have to resist the temptation ;)

  • I will resist going again tomorrow morning though Wed is forecast -2!! I would rather run two days in a row than run in that but guess I'll wait!
