W2 R1 that was a challenge!
I was ok until the final 1:30 run, that nearly killed me! I couldn't even bring my legs to do a brisk walk to cool down 😂 Got a Fitbit today so it was interesting to see stats after too. Let's hope run 2 is a little easier!
I would say perhaps you need to run more slowly? It's easy to set off fast but in Week 2 you don't have the conditioning for it...
Slow down...then you will find the next run a breeze!
Well done you!
Thanks Oldfloss! I think you're right, my pace today was probably quicker than w1. It's amazing how often you need to keep reminding yourself to slow down, isn't it?!
Oh yes.. even I have to tell myself.. slow down you!!!
Keep with me and let the 🐌 overtake and it's a bit easier: Doing this run for the second time tomorrow morning. Well done for completing it
Thanks! Maybe if I wear a shell on my back it'll be a constant reminder to slow down?! Good luck tomorrow morning
I can't really do anything but slow so it works for me.I'll post how I get on next time. Good luck for your next run.
Thank you 😊
Start my week 2 on Tuesday and worried about jelly legs too, well done for completing it ... doesn't matter how fast you get there... every finish is a win... feel as proud of yourself as we are of you 👍🏃👍
Ps...Fitbit is addictive... had mine for a couple of month and I am obsessed!! The Strava app is good too... you can build up a log of all your runs with stats etc ...
Thank you! You're right, I should feel proud and stop thinking about how it was challenging. Good luck on Tuesday, let us know how it goes 😁
snail pace minus 1 and today I even got down to snail pace minus 2
Slowly, slowly, very slowly...it will be easier the slower you start, it easy to start Week 2 with quicker running because you think that’s what you ought to do but actually it’s best to start every run slowly, even at W9R3 😉
I used to do that too early on... almost sprint then be puffed out and struggle (still have to be mindful of that) but once I realized what I was doing ‘wrong’ I slowed and settled in to a good pace.
I need to speed up again now!
Stick with it 😃.
Glad to hear I'm not the only one who's done that, so thank you! It's another lesson learnt and will hopefully make it more enjoyable next time 😁
move. After the fourth run I was really out of breath and the right side of my chest was a little tight...
thats 1 down 2 to go hmmm not sure about this running and breathing malarky that Laura says we should...
voluntarily been on four runs since last Monday. I have always hated running, probably like a lot of...
