Week 6 - Run 1 - in the bag!

Phew! I was a little nervous about that one, as apparently going back to intervals can catch you out after the 20 minute run of week 5.

It went a little pear-shaped when my podcast skipped to the next session on the second walking interval.... but I managed to near enough find where I left off and carried on.

On checking my garmin app - it looks like I cut the second walking session short as a result of the glitch ..... but I added an extra few minutes running at the tail end of the session, so that should make up for that.

It was a good start to a beautiful day - Happy Monday beautiful people x

I was knackered after the 8 minute run. Then breezed the last 5mins. It’s a strange game this running malarkey.

I’m at exactly the same stage as you. I think my problem was that I thought today’s run would be a breeze after the 20 minute run on Friday. It really wasn’t!! I looked at my watch the whole time and I was convinced it was going slower than normal. The relief I felt when I finished it was enormous. I’ll try not to be so cocky in future 😜

Well done on completing it.
