Hi, so pleased with having completed week 4 yesterday. While running I had some thoughts:
1) Week 4 is massively more running than before, however it went well. It seems that starting slowly, sticking to seeks 1-3 was really worth it. Specially my legs felt good, actually much better than during weeks 2 and 3. It seems that these muscles and bones are getting used to being pounded on the ground.
2) I am still sticking to the number 1 advice of keeping the pace slow. However I indulged a little and allowed myself to gradually accelerate for the last 2.5 minutes of the podcast. I felt that if there is something left in the tank, I am allowed to use it. That was fun too.
3) I can feel the difference C25K is making already. Today we did a bike tour where I was hauling junior behind me. That felt easier than before.
From now on I am calling myself a runner, looking forward to week 5!
