When I did the first run on Tuesday I had to walk through most of the second 3 minute and 5 minute runs because my legs hurt so much and my lungs were burning. I felt really low, convinced I would have to repeat this week.
The second run I ran through the pain (it was my calves and it just felt like they were getting used to the run, not like an ow injury sort of pain) and I am glad I did because after my cool-down the pain was gone and I felt cautiously pleased.
Before my run this morning I wondered if the last run was a fluke, and I was concerned I wouldn't be able to repeat my success. Especially after the first 5 minute run, I thought "No! 90 seconds walk isn't enough let me catch my breath!"
I managed it though, I concentrated on the music and pushed myself to shuffle through it. I remember this time last week when I considered 3 minutes too much, and smiled a little when I recalled doing the 3 minute run today thinking "Well, it's not so bad, it's not the 5 minute run!"
I wonder if next week I will be considering 5 minutes as comfortable. Next week looks horrible.
Have a lovely weekend you lovely people! xx
