Really thought I would be too puffed to run for 5 minutes at a time, but here I am starting week 5 with optimism (well for the first 2 but scared about the 20 minute run on number 3).
So the runs are bareable just really tired legs at the time that recover during the brisk walking and I feel on top of the world when the run is completed and go home and start doing all sorts of energetic things around the house.
Then next day I am drained, and struggle at work, even get puffed going upstairs. Maybe I need to eat more, I am trying to loose weight too so am being quite careful, but I don't feel hungry just shattered. Then miraculously am ready and very willing for a run the next day. It puts me off a bit knowing that I will struggle at Orkney the next day.
