What did week 6 have in store? I was a bit unsure of what to expect after the highs of W5R3 but I have seen a lot of posts on here about how difficult week 6 can be.
Life got in the way and was struggling to fit run 1 in my normal schedule and then a light bulb moment - I can do my run on the way to my errand and it just so happens that this is where my local parkrun is held so I can do a recce as well! In theory fantastic idea, really nice part of the shore, wide paths, fantastic views on a summers evening, the only problem was this was a driech Tuesday night and I just about froze. It took a really long time to get moving and generally huffed and puffed my way through it. Not a happy bunny. Week 6 is horrible!
Still run 2 would be better. Not really, for the first time since I started this programme I really felt like packing in after a couple of minutes, legs were like lead. Still I battered on and quite glad I did, bit surprised at the distance covered and even managed to zone out for a few minutes. Week 6 is getting better.
Then, of course we have run 3, expecting to do 23 minutes and discovered it was 25 (gulp) now it’s getting serious. Sounds a bit strange but found things a bit easier without the walking break, just as well no more of them now. Made it to the end then with those words you really want to hear “you are a runner now”. Week 6 might not be that bad after all.
Onwards and upwards, Happy Running everyone!
