So i went out on sunday morning having had nearly 3 weeks off! i previously had gotten to week 8 run 2 so was really disappointed with myself to go back 3 weeks. Managed to do week 5 run 1 with my friend helping to motivate me, but it felt awful, i could hardly breath, i was a staggering disaster! i did recover quickly though so was spurred onto W5 R2 yesterday, which i extended slightly and did 8 min run, 2 min walk, then 11min run, so hopefully tonight i will manage the 20 minute W5R3 hurdle. I think my problem was that i missed the 8/10 minute runs with the little walks in between, i don't think i was ready to jump so quickly from 20 minutes, to 25mins to 28mins. I think i will now do week 7 and 8 for 2 weeks each so that i can really feel ready for the big 30mins. If i can keep my motivation up in these cold evenings then hopefully i will get my graduation badge just in time for christmas! Heres hoping!
