Week 1 - Run 2 Completed

My alarm went off and I pulled the curtains back to find that it was still pitch black outside. There was no way I was going out in that!

So I waited until daylight broke, got dressed, and left my house.

Though my legs were still aching from the previous session, this one was much better. I managed to slow down my pace during the running parts, so I didn't feel like I was gonna die before each section ended.

Felt very virtuous all day long. :)

Yes, many people have reported that they thought that they would die during the running parts of the first week, some even did those early runs near to a hospital with an A&E department just incase they collapsed, that would be because they were running too fast, by week two they felt a lot better because they slowed down during the running parts. Glad to hear that you are enjoying your running. 😊 πŸƒ Onwards and upwards to run 3 of week 1πŸƒπŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸƒπŸƒ
