A third through

And so the third week hits the dust just as my feet have been doing . So tell me good people how come , I’m now running for a longer time, I end up nearer the start at the halfway ding ding than I did in week one. Do I now run slower than I walk? I wouldn’t be surprised as the scenery doesn’t exactly fly past me, in fact I can almost watch the leaves changing colour!

At the beginning of the week I was fantasising about the jaunty sparkly hat I would wear on my first 5k run near Christmas. Now I’m wondering if my heart lungs and legs will take a little holiday of their own and refuse to join me .

Does anyone else have the oddest desire to do it again after about an hour at home? I never do of course

  • Week 3 is a shorter time week overall although you are running in longer segments the time of running is the same as week 2 but the walking breaks are shorter. The distances will start to increase as you progress through the weeks though. You aren't getting slower (honest) and you are doing fantastic!

  • Oh thank you for that I was beginning to think that by week nine I would only get to the end of the road , 🤤

  • Slow and steady is fine... you are doing wonderfully!
