Well it's been a while since I've been here, I have many excuses, being on holiday, being a busy bee and almost dying of running in the lovely weather fails! So, here I am having just completed week 5, and feeling fab!
Week 5 run 1 I did a couple of times, once before going away on holiday but didn't writes blog post because I was instead busily packing for a trip to New York (it didn't take much deciding which was most important). I then did it again when I returned and brought the gorgeous weather with me, I re did it as I'd had a week off and put half a stone on by eating until I burst with US portions! Due to the heat (20+ degrees at 9.30 am) I just couldn't manage to finish properly, I managed the first 2 runs and only half of the last, not really gutted as I'd definitely underestimated the heat!
After my failure I felt a bit dejected as I knew with the continuing weather I wouldn't be able to continue, and then I had an idea..... I joined the gym!
I did week 5 run 2 on Thursday deciding although I'd had a break not to re repeat run 1 simply because I find treadmill running quite a lot easier even on an incline of 2. This morning I did run 3 and even if I do say so myself I did brilliantly! I ran my 20 mins without a break, then after 2 mins of my cool down walk I realised I was fully recovered so upped the speed to see what I could cope with, and did a faster 5 min run on the end, then the usual 5 min cool down.
Although treadmill running has given me the opportunity to continue with the plan, I don't intend to give up on out door running, but I will complete the plan indoors as its soooooo much more encouraging!
I'm ok at this, and very proud of myself I am!
