I found run 1 in week 4 the hardest yet, but determined to carry on and found run 2 much easier. For run 3 I decided on a change of venue but did not realise how much hillier this run was. We are not talking steep hills here but quite long ones. I completed the first 3 sections of the run, ie 3 mins, 5 mins and the other 3 mins but 1/2 way through the last 5 mins my legs just buckled and I ended up walking the rest of the time. I was so upset. I kept telling myself that I had already run 5 mins 5 times but my legs would not listen to me. Even the next day my legs were wobbly, so I took 2 days rest and tried again at my original venue, and I did it!!! I was dreading week 5 but run 1 was completed reasonably easily, even managed to quicken my pace a little when running past other people!! My breathing is definitely getting better as well . Doing run 2 tonight when it's cooler trying to reduce any reason for failing. Can't believe I've got so far after huffing and puffing my way round W1r1.
