Off I set this afternoon to attempt the first run of week 2. I started from a different place, so my 5 minute warm up walk took me to my previous starting point.
I found the 90 second runs ok. Easier on the way back as the route is a very gentle incline to the turnaround spot and very gently downwards on the way back. By very gentle, I mean that you wouldn't notice it if you were walking, but do if you're jogging (at least you do if you're as unfit and overweight as I am!)
When Laura told me to do the 5 minute warm down walk I was still not back to the point I'd reached at the end of the warm up walk. So, feeling rebellious, what with it being a Friday afternoon and all, I slipped in an extra run (don't tell Laura!)
At this point I can't imagine running for 3 minutes, let alone 30. Well I can if I fantasize, but in that fantasy I'm 20 years younger and 20 kilos lighter!
My biggest problem is my shins hurting. It started on the second run last week. They're fine when I walk, but are sore when I run and also to touch Any ideas?
I'm hoping I'll just grow out of it over the next couple of weeks.
