Well I made it through in one piece,legs a little stiff but that's only to be expected. Quite pleased i did this, been. looking at the plan the last few days and was looking forward to doing it. Now time to hit the shower and get ready for work ( which involves a 20 min brisk walk to the metro,bet I feel that today)

Well done. It will never be that hard again! I was dying during my w1R1 and came close to stopping after the 5th running interval. Each run gets a little easier and I have noticed the benefit already (W3R1). Keep at it and you'll be running for 30 mins in no time.

Thanks for the welcome and encouragement :)

Well done on your first run. If your used to brisk walking your legs won't feel too bad at all.

I finished W1R3 yesterday. I found the W1R2 the hardest, but the W1R3 was easy. I think because on my rest day in between I went for 4km brisk walk. So I had a pure rest day in between the 2nd and 3rd and it was much easier. On to W2R1 tomorrow :) Good luck on the ret of the week.

Hi runcanada, like you I really struggled with w1r2 but on my first rest day I did a 30km bike ride at the gym!!! Today is my second rest day and I am doing nothing at all (maybe take the dog for a short walk tonight). Got my 3rd run tomorrow so hopefully that will be easier. Good luck with W2
