Week 1 day 2

OMG nearly thought I was going to die but I made it! Legs really didn't feel like they were mine but not too bad now (several hours later!) I made a fatal mistake I went out too late in the morning the sun was well up and despite the wind the temperature was in the high 20's! that will teach me to go either early or in the evening 🙁

That being said I don't know how I will ever run more than 60 seconds but the walk back up the hill was a lot easier than Monday!

Hats off to you for starting this while you are away! I am currently re-doing the programme with a friend of mine and we did W1R2 last night (delayed due to clashing diaries!!) and I made her sprint the last 30 seconds or so but to be fair it was a lovely steady incline...

Just remember to take each running section slow and steady with the longer runs and really use the walking sections to recover before the next one and you will be fine.

It took me 3 attempts to complete W1R1 so well done for completing run 2! I never felt the walking offered any recovery, and couldn't see how I'd ever be abe to run for more than a minure. But it really does get easier, and now at W6R3, I realise how much I really needed to do it. You can do this!
