It was a tough run. I felt slight tightness in the left calf muscles after the run, but it’s ok now. I’m hoping it is nothing more than tired legs. Early morning run definitely helped as temperature was nice and comfortable. I managed to cover 4K in these 25 mins, so unlikely that I’ll be able to do 5K in 30 mins, but like others have said its more about the time and not so much about the distance. Even if I don’t get to 5K by end of this program I’ll be happy to be able to run for 30 mins. I can always build up from there on.
I achieved the official status of being a runner early this morning. I ran for an amazing 25 mins non-stop. Such a feeling of achievement. I’m so pleased that I decided to get on to this program.
I can proudly say that this is amongst the best decisions I’ve made. And this amazing community, wow! you guys here are amazing. So many inspiring stories and wonderful advices that keeps me going.
Thanks everyone! 👏🏻
And everyone else on W6, this is doable, believe in yourself and the program. Keep yourself hydrated and focus on the stretches before and after the run. All the best!
