Hello everyone, I haven't posted for a while so thought I'd give you a little update.
W3 was really quite good😀 I took to evening running ( under cover of darkness😂) I was worried about the longer runs so my reasoning was ....if I did pass someone they wouldn't be able to see just how unfit I am🙄 Anyway, it worked out well and I found I really enjoyed that half an hour of ' me time' on an evening😀
W4 R1 ( yesterday )
Having ' just' managed the 3 minute runs I wasn't brimming with confidence about running for 5😱. And I couldn't go on the evening🙄.
So.... 2 choices either leave it a day or man up😂 I manned up!
It was truly the first time I thought I was going to fai.....sorry, practice run😂😂😂
The first 3 minutes came and knowing I'd done it two days ago spurred me on, heavy legs but did it👍
Now, I knew that it was 3 then 5 repeated but how did I miss 90 seconds walking???? Before I knew it our lovely Laura was telling me to run😳 Well, like a good student off I trot.
After what seemed like at least another 3 and repeatedly glancing at my watch, exhausted with concrete calves up she pipes... You're half way there!!! WHAT???? That's when you lot kicked in😉 Ok, I thought, half way is half way, a few weeks ago 1 minute was torture, you CAN do this.
Sooo I slowed down a bit, thought about my breathing and for the first time I think I found a bit of rhythm 😀😀😀 . The last two minutes where spent enjoying my surroundings, snowdrops popping up, birds going about their business and what a beautiful frosty morning it was😀
After that there was no way I wasn't going to succeed! Next 3, no problem. Next 5 was hard again but with all the advice from here in my head and no clock watching I just enjoyed it!!!
You couldn't get the smile off my face😀 I even said out loud 'you did it!'
Sorry for the novel, well done if you got this far, if you did then week 4 will be a breeze😂😂😂
Good luck 🌶
