I've been so nervous about w3r1, worked myself into a bit of a state if I'm being honest. I just couldn't see how I would go from 90sec to 3mins. My partner is running with me, he graduated years ago but hasn't run for 5 years or so. He is much faster than me and I usually follow him, but today he ran alongside as he knew I was nervous. He controls the app and times and I listen to music.
We got into a proper argument tonight because I was utterly convinced he was lying to me about the durations. I'd have put money on us only running for 90seconds a time. Actually he wasn't, I had ran 3mins twice! I couldn't believe it!
Is it an issue though that I didn't really feel that tired? Admittedly it was slow because I was pacing myself (expecting the worst). I suppose next time I just try to go faster? I'm averaging 15min/mile and 2 miles for the session.
Amazed right now. I ran for 3 minutes.....twice!!
