This is my first post, but I confess I have been lurking for some time (so thank you for all the support and encouragement I have already felt from this forum!)
So here goes with my question: on Sunday I did W6R3, and I am not sure whether I am jubilant or disappointed. I have run in the past, but not in the last few years, so I know that my body likes to run and I have felt pretty comfortable and confident with the program so far. However, Sunday was a different beast - ie it was really tough and my confidence is wavering a bit.
The facts are that a bit of a minor domestic crisis meant that I didn't get out early as I normally would. By the time I left home it was mid morning and very hot and humid (can you tell I don't live in the UK!). I probably hadn't drunk enough, and I had to do a different route which is even more hilly than usual.
I managed to do the run, but it was a real struggle. Now I am not sure whether I should just repeat this run 3 times for this week (so I know I can do it comfortably) or whether just having survived the run is enough for moving on to week 7 (next run is tomorrow morning, Sydney time). I am probably over-thinking things, but I have put my absolute faith in Laura, so I feel like my wobble is a bit of a betrayal ... and I am just not sure what it's best to do.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
P.S. little Week 6 funny story for those of you who use the podcasts - I genuinely thought Laura was having a bit of a laugh putting in a song with the lyrics "so wheezy, so wheezy" ... but it finally twigged on Sunday that I had misheard!
