On reflection today’s W3R2 was actually no worse than W3R1, although whilst I was completing each interval it felt much worse that previously. I’m putting this down to going out with friends last night which resulted in lots of lovely food (including a scrummy dessert!) and getting in late. I also had to modify my usual route today to avoid workmen in the bottom half of the street repairing the road!
I’m starting to look into week 4 and the dreaded 5 minute interval (eeeek!) The three minutes this week so far have been a challenge and I am thankful when Laura tells me I can walk again! I know that this plan is not only a physical challenge but also a mental challenge as well, so I’m thinking positive thought already.
One of the positives I have noticed this week, is that the 90 second intervals are so much easier than last week (when they were taxing) so I’m hopeful the same will apply next week to the 3 minutes (here’s hoping)
I’ll be running on Friday with my partner who is home for a few days after working away. I’ve downloaded another copy of week 3 to put on my old Mp3 player that he can use. Anyway, onwards to run 3 on Friday.....
