I completed my first run of week 4 last night and boy was it hard. I really don’t know how I managed it all to be honest. I had to run after work due to the bad weather yesterday morning.
The first 3 minutes were.... ok. The next 5 minutes were hell. The second 3 minutes were better than the first. It was the last 5 minutes that were an absolute killer. When Laura told me to finally stop, I almost cried. I tried to focus on my breathing during each interval in order to take my mind off how much I wanted to stop. It was definitely mind over matter.
I was a lot more conscious of other people being around than when I run in the morning, which I didn’t really like.
I don’t know if it was running in the evening, but I slept like a baby last night! My knees have been a little sore today when walking up stairs; I’m hoping that the rest day will help this.
I‘m still in shock today that I did it! I just have to do it again now (twice!) I just hope it gets easier
