Week 1 run 3

Chuffed. Got week one under the belt. Must need to slow down as that was even harder than 1 or 2. First daytime run and plenty of people about so I think pride (yes, that comes before the fall!) got in the way so went quicker than I should and was puffed out constantly.

I may repeat week one knowing that I need to go slowly, plus just put my back out again getting washing out of the dryer. Week off, start from scratch! Annoyed but determined.

Go slowly til you’ve built your running legs, which takes quite a long time

Slow is gooooooood 👍

The advice on here (to help judge pace) is that you should be able to have a conversation as you run, rather than gasp a word or two!! It sounds like slowing down would be good. 😄

I hope your back is better soon.

Yes I think I pressured myself as there were others around! Silly, but I’ll know better when I start again next week (fingers crossed!!)
