Well, I ran w2r3 this evening, all three were completed successfully so I guess technically I can say week 2 is done. However I don't feel as if I've completed it mentally; I'm not sure I'm ready to move on yet - the prospect of three minutes is very daunting!
One reason for this may be that my week seemed to revert rather than progress:
w2r1 was absolutely fine and I felt quite triumphant!
w2r2 was a bit tougher - my chest/breathing was ok but my legs felt a little heavy.
Run 3 tonight and again my chest was ok (a little breathless but no more than I'd expect), but my legs felt like lead and I was verrrry glad to see the end of each 90 second section of running.
Will my legs hold up to 3 whole minutes?! I really don't know. So I have the dilemma of repeating this run to see if it makes me feel better, or trusting in the system and giving week 3 a go....and maybe surprising myself?! But possibly maybe failing and finding I should have done a few more 90 second stints.
Hmmmmmm! What to do?! :S Ultimately though I feel pleased - I have been out to run six times in all weather, and have run for a total of 51 minutes.......if you'd asked me a fortnight ago if I'd have managed that, never mind tackling it with excitement and enthusiasm, I would have laughed you out of the door!!
