Until now I have found weeks 1-3 ok, not easy and towards the end of week 3's runs I was struggling but I hadn't had to push myself to the end.
That all changed today after completing W4R1. This was the first run that I set out on without knowing what I had to do before, I had always checked so that I knew, think I prefer that. I had seen somewhere about a 5min run but hadn't realised it was a combo of 3 mins and 5 mins, twice !!
I finished it (just) but jeez it was hard going. Laura is right though, without really realising it I am now running more than I am walking and although I didn't find it easy, I didn't find the first runs too hard, being honest it was the last 5 mins that I struggled through.
I've also booked myself in to the Big Run Run 5k at the beginning of Nov, I should have graduated a few weeks before so I'm getting there. Not looking forward to running for more than 5 mins though !!!
