W4R1 - sorry you got left behind Laura

It wasn't you're fault - but the gremlins must have hidden my headphones as I couldn't find them anywhere. With the aid of mapometer and calculating roughly my walking speed and running speed for W3 runs, I planned what I thought would be a walk/run as close to W4 schedule as possible.

Weather was a balmy 4 degrees, so no frost or ice on the pavement which was a relief. The first 3 min jog was easy and I much preferred the shorter walk afterwards although towards the end of the first five minute jog I was ready for the walking segment. The second half seemed easier - possibly because I didn't get so cold on the walking parts. I also chose a different route today and I think the footpaths were a better surface to run on than the usual uneven pavements.

Be interesting to see how I get on with Laura for timed W4 run - assuming I can find my headphones!

  • Well done! Those gremlins tried to distract you by taking away your headphones, hit you didn't let that stop you. You're invincible! :D

    Onward to the next one... :)

  • Good for you! I didn't have Laura with me on any of my C25k runs as my then phone wasn't smart enough to have the app. I just noted the plan for that run down on a scrap of paper and used my watch. So it IS possible but not ideal. Hope you have phone and earphones next time!

  • You must find them, for no other reason than the comment at the end... (see my earlier post if you want a spoiler!)
