Did my second run of week 7 today, usually run after work but as I was rained off decided to get it over with earlier!
Already ran for 25 minutes twice (W6R3 & W7R1) and as I do the same route I know roughly where my warm up walk ends and my run starts and what point 25 minutes will get me. Therefore I didn't listen to Laura but had my own playlist on. Found it easier than the last run and when nearing the end (25 minutes) decided to carry on a bit further, ended up getting all the way home (5.06km) in about 33 mins 30 secs. I am extremely chuffed, I'm 41, only 5'8" and a shade under 15 stone so a fair bit overweight and not really exercised properly since school so seven weeks ago, after puffing like a train after the 60 second runs, and with all the aches and pains that came in the first ferw weeks I never dreamt I would be able to run for that time/distance.
My question is, now I have run 5k should I continue to run that sort of distance and ignore the rest of the plan or just treat it as a good day, one off, and continue with the rest of week 7, 8 and 9?
