Second run

Well I did my second run today??.......but It actually went easy than I expected?? and yes i've just found the smiley buttons.

As i've said I use a treadmill for my runs and today I had downloaded the podcasts to my iPod classic. The lead from my headphones is just a little bit on the long side by about three

I was concentrating so hard on not falling on my backside the runs passed in a blur.

Then next thing Laura said that registered was the five minute walk at the end.

I stretched for longer before and after so I hope my recovery is a little better. (No painful quads) well the ones I can feel.

Lets hope the next one goes as well......maybe I should keep the lead long??

Well done! You and I could be running together, I am also using a treadmill and I completed W1R2 yesterday, despite clock watching so I wasn't late for work it went really well!

Are you going to a gym and do you have a choice of treadmills? Our gym instructor pointed out that on one of the treadmills you can toggle between the 'fast walk' pace and the 'steady jog' pace which I tried and felt much more comfortable than having to keep on pressing the up/down 'speed button'. I also like being able to monitor my heart rate, which didn't get too high so also made me feel good!

Hope run 3 goes ok for you, mine is tomorrow. I seem to have picked up a bit of a wheeze/cough so not sure how it will go...hoping to start W2 on Friday!...

What smiley buttons?
