Today is the day! The big 20 minute hurdle.....
On the one hand, my head is saying 'bring it on' and my other head is saying 'there is no way you can do this if you struggled with the last run, which was 9min, 3min walk, 9 min, 5 min! The reason I know I can do it is because I recovered really quickly on the last run, when the walking bit came and I felt I was ready to go again after a minute or so........the problem is how do I mentally keep going for 20 mins. My legs are still a bit sore from yesterday. Anyway, what warm ups do you do prior to your running? I tend to just use the warm up five minutes and I don't think that is enough. Are there specific exercises that will help?
I've also changed my iPod music after the last song on the last run was Black Eyed Peas 'I can't go any further than this'! Not good, but really did make me laugh.
Loving this forum, so thank you everyone for keeping me motivated and more importantly actually really enjoying it
