I've just done W6R3 - 25 minutes of running without any rest period. I don't mind admitting, I was scared. I was due to run on Friday but after going to bed late and getting up early to watch the election results I was worried my body would be too tired - so I went home instead of going to the gym and drank wine instead!
Went to my normal spinning class yesterday morning but it was a different instructor and he really punished my legs with a different programme.
Can you see what I'm doing? I'm making excuses ready for when I fail and am not able to do the full 25 minutes.
Guess what though? I went to the gym this morning (having to run on the treadmill because of previous injury) and I did it. I ran for 25 minutes without stopping at 7.1 kph. I did it. I thought I was going to be sick at the end but I did it. How did this happen? I literally couldn't run a minute in week 1. To anyone reading this who is early on in the programme and doubting whether they can do it - DON'T. I am 44, hugely overweight, size 18 and was enormously unfit. It's not easy and there will be times when you want to give up - but if I can get this far, so can you. In week 1 I could only manage 45 seconds without stopping. If I can do it, anyone can do it!
