First run of week 4....what was I worried about?!


Last week I posted my dread about the 16 minute run in week 4 and I had some lovely encouraging responses! I just wanted to say thank you as the advice given to me, particularly by ClearlyAM kept going round in my head and I did it!

I ache more today (the day after) than I did on any previous runs but it really wasn't all that bad!

So to anyone who was like me, dreading 16 mins then don't do what I did and add it all up, break it all down! Simples!

I will probably be posting in a few days about bricking myself for week 5!! It does make it easier having people who have been there and done it to give advice so thank you!

Brilliant, well done you. My advice would be that on rest days you try and go out for a nice walk. It helps to stretch out and if you can find someone to walk with its nice to have a chat. Not all exercise has to be hot and sweaty,

I dread every long run but when i have got there i have managed it so i guess we just trust the plan.
