Did week 6 run 2 a couple of days ago, and used Strava to gauge the run for the first time. The strange thing was I felt a pressure to run faster because of it! Is this normal? Also I had Michael Johnson and Strava in one half of my brain saying 'go for this, you can go a little faster if you want to' and UnfitNoMore saying 'slow and steady'! Hmmmm, ended up just speeding up a little bit towards the end of the second 10 minutes. Strava said I'd done 2km in the run - by my accounting that won't get me to 5K by week 9 but hey!
Week 6 run 3 tomorrow. Nervous ....!
PS do people set strava going on the warm up walk, and keep it on until the end of the warm down - or just start it when Michael Johnson says 'Go for it'?!
