Quick recap: Completed C25K at a slow 7kph running speed (with no incline), wanted to see if i can make my 260lb bum go any quicker!
Week 1 was a success, after completing the three runs at better speeds, i did a thirty minute run, this time i was able to go at 7.5kph on a 1% incline.
I have just completed run 2 of week 2, and it was incredible. Cant believe it. Two days ago i found i was able to do the week 2 first run at 10.5kph intervals, I think first time round i did them at 6kph (yes it is possible to technically run at 6kph!). Well today, i thought i would be a bit cheeky.
Each of the intervals is a ninety second run, followed by a two minute walk repeated six times. Well, I did the first sixty seconds of each of the runs at 10.5kph, but for the last thirty seconds i upped my speeds to 12.5kph and 13.5kph depending how i was feeling!
I felt at least once or twice that smoke was coming off my shoes
Of course, i could only maintain that speed for those last thirty seconds. But, as I said, i could barely do the same at 6kph only three months ago.
