It feels like I'm spamming the forum with my updates, but I was a lurker for so long and learnt so much from other peoples posts that I feel like if someone, anyone, can benefit from my rambles then I'll be happy.
I completed the third run och week 6 today. I'm not going to lie, I wasn't sure at all that I would be able to finish it, especially since the second run went poorly, but I went super slow and steady and finished it. I actually ran for 25 minutes without stopping. That's a little impressive. I'm a little impressed by my own achievement, this program really does work. It wasn't easy and I got a stitch in my side and after 20 minutes in my right leg got a little numb, but overall it went okay.
It was a little bit weird that it got harder and harder up until ten minutes into the run and then it sort of plateaued into a steady "my calves are working and the muscles are tensing up and I'm huffing like a steam engine, but I'm running and moving forwards" that didn't get worse than that. Is that how it feels like for you?
Hope you're all doing well and happy running!
