W1R2 DONE!

JaneyB311 profile image

I was completely not feeling this when I woke up today. As I said previously, this is my 3rd time doing C25K and injures stopped me the previous times, so this time I’m taking a more sensible approach and cross training.

So Friday was a strength and conditioning class, Saturday was Pilates. This morning my legs, butt and stomach muscles were like lead!

However I pushed on and did it and felt surprisingly good. I’m really proud of myself for not allowing my head to talk me out of it. Roll on Run 3!

Well done Janey and what a great approach. Keep the running slow and steady and slow down so more if you have to. This will help avoid injury and there's no stopping you this time!

Thanks Stevie. I’m keeping it pretty slow and am doing my initial runs on a treadmill so I can be sure of pacing myself while I adjust to running again as I always ended up running faster when outside and running out of steam too quickly.
