I was a little bit nervous before I headed out today and questioning would I be able to run for the full 8 minutes. Although a really cold day, the sun was shining and as I started my 5min warm up walk I started to relax and prepare myself for my run.
I took on board Sarah’s advice that this was more a mental challenge as I’ve now built up the stamina. The first 8min run was manageable although the last 60 seconds tougher and I was relieved to then have a 5min walk to recovery. The last 4mins of the next run was tough but I took on board the advice others had shared and just kept picking a spot to run to then visualising the next spot and the next until I completed the 8mins.
I’m going to give myself a 2 day rest as my legs are quite heavy but excited to then take on my first 20min run for R3 😁
Thanks for the support everyone as your advice and encouragement gave me the belief I could complete R2 🙌
