Was meant to be doing W7 R1 tonight but failed to complete it. Only managed to run for 12 minutes so not even half-way. Just felt achy, couldn't get my breathing right and my son kept trying to talk to me (he was on his bike) but I couldn't run, talk and breathe! 😆 Once I stopped to speak to him, I totally lost my momentum and couldn't get back into it. Really annoyed with myself!
Thinking I'll have to adjust my schedule now as my son can't cope cycling in silence for 25 minutes (fair enough!). Can the programme be completed successfully on 2 runs a week? Or could I do 2 runs as scheduled then repeat one week 6 run with walk breaks which he could accompany me on? As a single parent, I only get child-free opportunities while he's at cubs or with his dad, so not 3 times a week. Any advice gratefully received.
Has anyone failed a run then recovered and continued to complete the programme? I was so happy with my progress so far that I really don't want to drop out at this stage.
