Hi everyone. For the first time ever, i stuck to a programme and am doing r3 w9 tomorrow 😁 feeling great and motivate to continue running 3x a week or every 2nd day....
I am still finding, strangely, that the first 10mins are the hardest, then i get really into it and yesterday for the first time i was even able to do a mini sprint in the last 5 mins! I loved it.
Question is: why are the first 10 mins still the worst? Shouldn't those be my best as i have grown a bit in fitness?
Second question: i have been on the coast since week 7 started. Normally i live in Johannesburg which is 1750 m above sea level. Is this maybe the reason it's gone so well? I'm now worried when i get home after this holiday i will struggle to even run 20min, because of the altitude... is this to be expected?
