W6R1 challenging but worth it!

This run was a toughie for me, both physically & mentally. By the end of the 8 minute run I felt exhausted, I seriously thought about turning off the podcast & just walking home in defeat. Luckily I kept the podcast going though & when Laura said it was time to run again I realised that I could do it, so I did!

W5R3 felt like an amazing achievement for me & I wasn't really expecting to feel that same sense of pride for W6R1 but I do, I feel great!

Well done you. I am doing W6R3 on Friday and am looking forward to a few consistent runs. throughout the next few weeks. I struggled with W6 both run 1 & 2.

I think for me in W6 the real eye opener has been just how much the walks between the runs are part and parcel of the whole programme.

I thought it would be easier as the intervals seemed to be less total time, but the distance covered in the W6 runs was further than W5R3

Week six is the hardest!

By the way, never quit. If you feel that you really must stop then do so. Have a minute and then push on again 🙂 It's fine, and it beats packing in and going home 🙂
