WOW wow wow, felt this deserved a photo.
My friends are I are so chuffed with ourselves. Can't believe we've managed to run for 5 mins.... & TWICE !
Three & a half weeks ago I was huffing & puffing on 1 minute runs, I never imagined I would actually progress to this point so soon. I expected to struggle with this run but apart from a quick stretch when I felt a real tightening I didn't stop at all.
Surprisingly, I actually found the second 5 min run easier than the first one, it felt more comfortable and I realised I wasn't fixated on my breathing etc. It seemed to be more natural, if that makes sense ?
Doing my second run on Monday night which I'm looking foreword to now I know I can do it.
I could do with some advice though as I'm going to Greece next Wednesday for a week. Planning on taking my trainers & doing my 3rd run whilst away, not sure how I'll cope in the heat though. Any advice from more experienced runners would be appreciated. Would it still be sensible to move into wk 5 whilst I'm there or should I just stick with an extra wk 4 run ?
Don't want to knock my confidence & feel defeated if I find it too much.
Never ever thought I'd be taking running gear on holiday with me. Now I'm struggling to decide what I'm leaving out to fit my trainers in ! 😆
TIA for any advice x
