Week Three done - First fly in the eye ; )

Week three done! That's a third of the way through. Cool!

I had my first experience of a fly in my eye on run one which was a bit annoying but I refused to stop while I tried to get rid of it. I'm finding that I'm not hurting very much although I can feel my muscles more. The main thing that I find difficult is how hot I get, I'm not necessarilly too out of breath, just very hot and then I feel very cold when I get home. I did OK adjusting to the three minutes at a time although the last three mins of run 3 were a little harder against the wind. Hope to start week four tomorrow or Sunday but feel a bit nervous about getting though 5 min runs at a time! The walks in between will be welcome.

Well done! I've just done w4r1 and was a bit daunted when Laura said the next run was 5 mins. I did as she said and kept to a gentle jog and it was fine. 2nd time I needed that encouragement to keep going for the full 5 mins and would really have liked to stop but it was worth the effort to push through. Here's to getting fitter. Keep going, we can do it.


Well done! I've just done it too (w3r3), so I know how you feel, although I'm having the weekend off (from running) and starting week 4 on Monday :-)

Good running!


Thanks both. Hoping to get out first thing in the morning and run to my Nan's. I'm quite excited. I'm finding I'm disappointed on my days off that I can't go out. I just want to do it! Roll on week 9!
