Despite the continued trepidation about the next steps it does seem to be working. The three five minute runs even seemed less punishing than week 4's last run. So something must be going right. I even tried to put a little more pace into the final bit of the last run! Have now cut my verage lap time (endomondo) to just under 7 minutes per km. Unbelevable just a month ago. Now looking forward a little nervously to the second run of week 5. It all looks serious stuff from now on in. The crazy thing seems to be that it still works after a hard day at school with quality reviwers in to visit. The programme does motivate you. Thankfully I have steered far from injury and illness so far. If anything it has made me feel so much better for it. Even my doctor was impressed.
