Week 6 Run 1 done but very tough

Week 6 Run 1 done but very tough

Well everyone said this was a tricky one after the euphoria of the previous 20 minute run and everyone is right!!. Struggled from the start to get any rhythm and legs felt like lead. Didn't help myself by forgetting to use my inhaler pre run and nearly gave up when Jo abandoned me with a technical hitch. Still I ground it out and finished.

Still ... you've done it. That is the main thing - you've ticked another run off the list and you can move on to the next.

I have W6R1 tomorrow. Any ideas as to why going back to run/walk after W5R3's big20 is often troublesome? Psychology? Underestimating it? Overconfidence? Doing it too soon? Running faster?

All of the above I think, make sure you start out slower than normal

Thats the thing you learn on these later runs. The stop/start intervals break your rhythm up. You will get to run 3 desperate for a lovely, unbroken run.
