So thrilled to bits to find this community and just in the nick of time. I have been frankly amazed to have got as far as I have (formerly a non-sport person but having done six months of Joe Wicks HIITS from January to June this year) but! This running lark is not getting any easier. There is no way on God's earth that I could possibly have a conversation and do any running at all - so don't understand this easy pace concept at all!! Do you think I should go backwards a bit in the program and concentrate on running slower (I am pretty darned slow as far as I'm aware anyway) and try to build up cardio fitness/leg strength/stamina?
So far I haven't dropped a single run and completed every single one to the second (bloody minded!) - no injury, pain, or stiffness the next day - but lung burning knackeredness and a general desire to stop pretty much all the time.
LOVE the satisfaction of finishing and perhaps the first couple of minutes!
All thoughts gratefully received! Four hours till decision time . . .
