Monday I attempted W7R1 and was very optimistic after getting through W6R3 and really enjoying it. Well wasn't I brought back down to earth with a bump! Struggled from the start and managed about 8-9 mins running before having to stop and just power-walked the rest of the way through the podcast.
Tuesday I tried again and used the podcast from W6R3 with it being the same run (but better music!) and JUST managed to keep my legs going for long enough to complete but also clutching onto the treadmill for dear life most of the way through.
Today, I tried again.
I decided to ditch Laura (sorry!) and opted for YouTube running anthems 2017 instead. It was harder than W6R3 I'm not going to lie but compared to the last couple of days it felt so much better! I can only assume that having my taste in music playing, spurred me on a lot more and made it more enjoyable so therefore easier to complete?
It's suggested that by Week 7, treadmill running can get a bit monotonous and you should try outside. I've done this a couple of times and to me it's a lot harder as I can't pace myself as well so never seem to be able to run as far. Has anyone completed just using the treadmill and/or have any advice?
