Well I'm glad to delete week 7 podcasts.
I don't know what it was I just struggled. So for anyone else suffering from the dreaded week 7 virus, just stick with it, go slower, change your route - anything - I tried all sorts just get to a point where I could kiss goodbye to it.
So yesterday I moved on to WK8 R1...OMG.....the trepidation. So the plan was to go as slow as possible (without stopping of course) stick with the pace, hold my head up and not care what other people think, stop trying to speed up or pretend to be breathing OK when passing other people (who are walking may I add). As I have a face like a beacon, trying to mask my gasps for breath ain't gonna make me appear any better/fitter.
And it worked.... and I enjoyed it, as much as the music stinks I'm back with Laura and when we'd finished our 28 minutes I flung my arms up in the air!?! What was all that about but I couldn't stop myself.
I'm way off 5k, measured yesterdays jogging part (mapometer.com) and it was about 3.5k and an extra 2 minutes ain't gonna make up the shortfall before graduation, so I'll just have to think about jogging for 30 minutes rather than the 5k.
