New blog as I couldn't open last my one!
Pleased to say I did my first run last night.
I found the podcast great - simplicity itself. No looking at stopwatches and trying to remember how many run segments I'd done.
I found the run segments went very quickly and at first found it fairly ok (I have a little fitness through walking the dog). As the segments went through I found that I was needing the 90mins recovery bit more and more. Having said that, I did slightly pick up the pace in run segment 7 and finished with a faster striding run in run segment 8 which left me really out of puff. The 5 min cool down was certainly needed.
So overall I found it just right. It was certainly taxing (I had a big glow afterwards) but not totally exhausting.
I also feel that I've achieved what I set out to do and was scheduled for me. Perhaps if I'd gone under my own steam I might have felt that 60sec run segments were not enough?
Lastly, Laura saying well done actually felt good. It was nice to have a virtual pat on the back, even though I appreciate it wasn't real or aimed at me!
