After the high of W5R3, it was time for me to get on to W6. Today was my W6R1.
And as suggested by a lot of others who are ahead of me on this program, I didn’t treat it as a piece of cake just because there are walking breaks. And wow the focus helped.
First 5 min run was tough. It feels the same for most of the runs (if I can say so in my 5 weeks of running 😀), the first run is always tough.
Second 8 mins were comfortable and I actually enjoyed the last 5 min run.
I noticed that the stretching and focusing on hydration is making all the difference.
When I started this program I was almost sure that I’ll not be going beyond W2, as all my previous attempts to remain active never went beyond 2nd week. Given that I’m into W6, I’ve decided if I reach W9 I’ll celebrate it with a Fitbit 😊
