I have stopped ‘looking ahead’ to see how long the run times are in future weeks, as I found it gave me a feeling of dread, even though when I actually did the run times I found them easier than I expected.
Today I opened W4R1, saw two 5 minute runs and thought OMG I can’t do that!!!
But I did it! I won’t say it was easy - the second one I was counting down the last 30 seconds - but I did it. It was a real boost to find that I ran more than I walked in that session.
4 weeks ago I couldn’t run more than a minute without getting out of breath, and now I can run for 5 minutes straight - the plan definitely works! My legs are slimming down and looking more toned, my skin is clearer (due to all the sweating!) and I feel ‘lighter’ - I haven’t lost any weight but I feel lighter on my feet.
So if you’re on Weeks 1-3, keep going - you are getting stronger with each run!
