well i completed week 1 on sunday and to be honest i found run 3 quite hard. I run outdoors and I am not too sure if it was because it was cooler but for the previous two runs of week1 I was able to give a little more and run for a bit longer. Run three felt different, I wasn't on form for it and I was knackered after doing the obligatory 4* 10 minute runs but none the less i put week1 to bed so i was pleased with that. I planned to do run 1 of week 2 this morning but I didnt have the energy to get up at 5 50am. i think the fact it ws dark too didnt help. anyway went off and did a days work (office work so non streneous) . I forced myself out to run at 8pm. dodnt get homefrom work until 7 30 so i was on an empty stomach which is my preference. Started to run after the warm up and i was aching. Could this be due to the weather being cooler? It as saying 8 celcius on the car thermometer on way home. Persevered through the first bit always remembering mind over matter as laura thought me back in the day. I so wanted to stop on so many occasions but I kept going. Then something happened .All of a sudden the aches were all gone and i was onfire. I just wanted to keep going for a bit further and i was able to aswell. I changed my route at the last minute and was able to run for the required 3*15 minutes and continued running for a further 12 minutes. All in i ran for 8.9k. granted its not that fast but i am not too worried about speed. I am pretty pleased with my perseverance. I do have one question as the weather is cooler now should I start doing some additional warmup exercises before I go out running? i do wear a longsleeve compression top and compression shorts along with tracksuit bottoms to keep me warm
