Have just come in from my W5R1 -- was not as bad as I thought! However, have started using the Nike+ app on my phone to see how far I am going and today, with my three sets of 5 min runs and the walks in between and at either end, apparently I only managed to cover 3km in the half hour! How slow am I??
I run through on the trails through the woods as I feel self conscious running on the pavements as every one seems to zoom past me and I feel like I'm only pretending to be a runner! So I prefer to run in the woods where I don't see a soul! But I still run like a snail? Is this ok or am I not doing this properly? How will I ever get to the point of doing 5k in around half hour when I go so slow??
Oh well, I am sure Laura knows best, so will keep on with the program and maybe once my fitness is able to cope with longer running periods, I can work on my pace....although I'm finding it hard even at a slow pace, the thought of upping my pace makes me feel faint!! Lol
