I did my W8R2 last night and decided run 3 would be tomorrow.
As usual I decided to do 30mins brisk walk on the treadmill as I do on my days off.
Then I realised my period started and I wouldn’t be able to run for few days so decided to get run 3 done tonight before the pain started.
I was so nervous as I’d never done 2 days back to back and wouldn’t want to but really didn’t want to be thinking about this run over the next few days.
I decided to get over and done with tonight. Started it really slow and ran at much slower pace than usual ( same pace as W1). Took another poster’s suggestion and focusing on 5mins at a time.
I got really exhausted around 90seconds before finishing but kept telling myself I would be stupid to give up so close to the end.
I was exhausted by the end but I did it! I can definitely see why everyone on here says it’s a mental challenge. You’re constantly having to fight off that doubt to continue.
I’m so glad I did it! Can’t believe I was struggling with 8mins last night and I managed 20 tonight.
