...And no more walking!

Well that's Wk6 R2 done and end of walking breaks, yikes. Feel quite worn out after today's run, didn't have my usual oatcakes before I left, just one on my way out. There's a festival in my local park and wanted to get round before the hordes arrived. Was fine running and the light rain helped but a the same time thinking uh oh it's all run run from now on, but actually isn't that what I've been aiming for?! ;)

That is wonderful well done!

Dont worry in advance of the next run, you will be ready for it! Just remember slow and steady to start with and then you can go a bit faster towards the end if you like!

Thank you 'Deryn61'! Think it's bit down to food last night choc etc and late night, does affect your runs next day I believe...;)

Well done runningwild. :) You'll probably find you prefer the continuous runs, after the first one. Intervals are so much harder. ;)

Yeah, I zoomed thru last Sunday on the Wk5 R3. You'd think it would be easier to run with breaks but I also think it gets you out of your zone and mind set, then you have to re- start again! Reading your story, well done to you and I feel I just want to keep on running as long as I can! Good luck ;)

I found the W6R3 and beyond runs easier than W6R1/2. I find it takes me between 5 and 10 minutes to settle into my stride, then I tend to zone out - a little - for the next 10 mins, before hitting the I'm-tired-it-must-surely-be-time-to-stop! phase.

Hurray! Thank you 'Swanscot,', after reading other blogs the evidence is mounting up on those 'intervals,' so I'm not going to worry about my last week 6 run...You sound similar to me, I literally have to get into my stride then zone out and before I know it, 'are we there yet!?' Happy running to you ;)
