Adios W3! W4 Fear is real.

Completed Week 3 so YAY to that HOWEVER; that success is already cowed by the impending leap in week 4. I get it, I was scared of the 3 minute intervals last week and I managed them but there seems to be an even bigger leap this week. Not only are the intervals longer but also there is more time running. I'm not great with change or maintaining the faith so I'm pretty scared of Wednesday.

To end on a positive, far less knee pain now too :)

Great job. Actually the leap is smaller if you look at it a slightly different way. Week 3 asked you to double the length of the running intervals, week 4 does not. You’re ready... relax and believe.

Don’t let the fear stop your progression!!! Your doing great and can do it!

Every week set you up for the next-it might seem like a leap-but it’s actually not-you are prepared! I’ve had the same doubts as you!

Just get out there, don’t think about!!! Smash week 4!!!!

Made it! But I did have to slow it down. My quads were starting to complain on the final 5 minute run.😸👟👟👟👟😸

Well done!! I’ll make a note of that. And make sure I go especially slow tomorrow. (There is no nail biting emoji)
