So 3rd week completed and very pleased
Now that I'm really getting into it lots of questions keep spinning round my mind: Should I be running faster? Have I got the correct sports bra to stop them swinging in the 'figure of 8'!! Should I be running outside instead of on the treadmill? Should I put the treadmill on an incline? But then I think to myself, well, at least I’M DOING IT
Run 1 - Went for a professional trainer fit on Saturday, so ran in my shiny new comfy trainers for the first time and it felt really good, almost like running on air. Didn't enjoy the music on this week's podcast as much as the previous two weeks, but I like how Laura talks to you after 1.5 minutes into the 3 minute run to make it seem not so long. But I didn't have any trouble with it so that was good.
Run 2 - Felt very tired today, had an extremely hectic day the day before and was mentally exhausted. But, got up and did it Initially I was tired but about half way in I was energised and started to enjoy it. I had muscle ache in my left leg, almost as bad as when I started the programme, but I've put this down to my new trainers - as they fit better than my old ones, and I was running slightly on the outside of my foot, especially on the left leg, I think I was exercising a different part of my muscles so it should ease up by tomorrow.
Run 3 - Went well today, the ache in my legs has gone and I upped the speed from 7.5k to 7.8k and it didn't feel much different so happy with that speed, I'll up it to 8k I think in a couple of weeks.
I'm loving this programme so much and feel really motivated so I registered to do the Race for Life in July!!
