Week 8 - Run 2 and feeling good

After my crisis of confidence on run 1 I was feeling a lot better this time round thanks to all the encouragement :)

I set off this morning and had a few technical issues, the podcast kept skipping and then my phone was calling random people, argh! After a few attempts to fix it I gave up and went solo using the endomondo app to time myself.

I was thinking that I would fail without Laura's encouragement but I just jogged along and checked my time every so often, it seemed to go much faster and before I knew it I was on 24mins! I even managed to speed up for the final part and got a new PB of 1 mile in 10m:08s! My distance was still at the 4k mark but I'm not beating myself up about it since I didn't find it so tiring this time.

Bring on run 3 on Sunday!

  • well done! its really annoying when the podcasts slip, someone said to delete them and download them again, but I got so fed up I have put them onto my mp3 player instead of my phone! I think you did really well to keep going, really impressed you were looking at times etc, I think I must be the slowest runner in the world, just glad to get to the end of each one! good luck with the last few runs.

  • Well done! I'm due to do week 8 run 2 tomorrow. Good Luck with run 3.

  • Glad you had a better run - well done! :)
