Just a short blog to update my progress.
I was able to leave work early today which meant I could start my second run of this programme in daylight which was good as I wasn’t looking forward to going back to evening runs after the Christmas break and it meant I was eased back into it gently
I was really geared up for this run and it turned out to be one of those “good” runs we all get but never seem to have enough of…!
After struggling with R1, this run went really well. I managed to keep to all four 1 min walking intervals without having to extend the last couple and the last 10 min run went well too; nothing like before thank goodness. I had to stop briefly 3 mins into the third run due to a niggle in the groin area but after a couple of stretches this went away and so I just added a bit more onto the final run to ensure I covered the full 40 mins of running time which meant I reached the 6K marker - furthest distance so far - so well chuffed!!
I always thought I was more of a morning runner but this evening’s run went soooo well that maybe I have got that wrong and the longer runs are better later in the day; I will soon see........ Looking forward to R3, hopefully on Friday.
Best of luck to you all on your next run!
