So today I completed week 1 run 3. Now to me it seemed like the runs were getting slightly harder each time, and I live in a very hilly area so there isn't much flat ground to run on. I've been mapping all my runs with the map my run app and my GPS, and after today's run I logged into Map My Run to see my data. I was so pleased when I saw that my average speed had gone from 18 minute miles to 14 minute miles. My distance had also increased from the first run, so I guess that although I thought the runs were getting harder I was actually going faster and further than before. Hooray!
It's definitely motivated me, bring on week 2!
