I did w5 r1 yesterday, all good, managed it well and recovery was quick. As Laura says, this week is all about a mental challenge as there are three different sessions. Now, w5 run 1 seems like a walk in the park compared to the big jump of 5 mins to 8 in the next run, and then,(yikes)from 8 mins to 20 In the third session!
I'm really asking for some experiences of how you all managed those mental and physical hikes in the amount of time running in week 5. Up until now, the training has guided me in gently, with increases of a few minutes and less walking etc...I'm determined to remain positive that I CAN do it, but the little demon on my shoulder is sniggering in my ear and saying " don't be so silly, that's impossible!"
