Hello, well I did week 6, run 1 early yesterday morning. I managed it ok but really needed Michael Johnson's encouragement to spur me on. The weird thing was that the runs - 5, 8 and 5 minutes for this first session - seemed longer than the non-stop 20 minutes of run 3 of week 5. Maybe it was because I left three days in between, or maybe that expensive Rolex that Michael wears in the ads in glossy mags is not working properly. All I know is that when he said I was half way through the 8 minute run, I felt like i'd been running (well, jogging really) for much more than that. Maybe having one day rest day was counter-productive although I did a couple of half hour walks on the rest days. What do others think?
Anyway, run 2 tomorrow so let's see how that goes. Rain predicted in the south east so that will be fun
