I am now in to week 8, and I found the first run quite gruelling. For some reason now when In start off my legs feel like lead. Keeping going towards the end was hard, especially on the slight inclines. I envy the people who say it gets easier, and that the aches and pains go away. Hopefully I'll get through this one day in the not too distant future. I plan to do the park run at the end of week 9, but I'm not looking forward to being seriously embarassed by the time it takes.
