Hello, just wanted to add some extra musings to my post earlier, I often just write the post as I get in from run, then later on think, mmmh should of mentioned that...
So....this week 3 is a strange little fish, it swings between feeing hard, the 3 minute bits and then at the end it seems to be over very suddenly, I think it only last 15 minutes or so . I definetly feel as if the first weeks felt harder and longer with the 7/8 one minute et al runs intersected by walkings . I felt like I had somehow cheated this morning by how sudden the session ended.
I see that next week I will have to do 5 minutes runs..😱....I wonder if the people who can now run for 20 minutes ( the beautiful but freaks that you are) can recall at what point length of times didn’t seem intimidating? I’ve started using the , “spot a familiar landmark like a bench or tree on route and just keep going to that” method..and hope jo wiley tells me to start walking by the time I’m there
I don’t think I’m a natural runner, I see others with free flowing arms and lovely long strides and then there’s me with more of a plodding , teeth gritted gasping gait😂
The only thing I do have in reserve is that I am as stubborn and as pig headed as a mule , wife can testify , and that’s what normally pulls me through the pod cast or indeed the park run experience last week. When does running become enjoyable?
Anyhow , there you are, the full musings and wonderings ...I’ll charge you extra if you want to read in blue ray
