Went for Week 2 Run 3 last night, the rest of week 2 has been quite nice and I’m already feeling the benefit of C25K, the other day I had to run for a tram and I ran (actually ran! Which is a big deal for me I usually wait for the next) and I caught it and wasn’t too out of breath, and was so excited.
On week 2 run 3 I really struggled I was tired straight away and was forever looking at my ipod to see how long I had to run couldn’t wait until it was over. I struggled with the tips Laura gave me with running so your heels hit to floor 1st it felt a bit unnatural and the breathing for 4 steps was near enough impossible I can’t breathe that slowly or deeply especially when running. It worries me slightly that if I struggle to breathe while running for 90sec how will I be able to run constantly for 30mins? Although it was a bad run it was not nearly as bad as the awful w1r1, which is progress really.
The only issue is that a bad run 3 had made me nervous for week 3. I’ll carry on though, today is my rest day might get chance to go out Saturday (hopefully).
On a more positive note I’m planning on going into town this afternoon to buy some new running shoes/trainers as the old falling to bits reeboks I’ve had since I was about 16 (I’m 23 now) are maybe getting a bit old but now I know I’m onto week 3 it’s not going to be a waste of money as I feel I’m a bit too far along to quit.
