So after having these podcasts on my ipod for longer than I care to remember, I started this a few weeks ago, but a couple of niggling injuries curtailed things. This is now my second attempt at Week 1, and will hopefully be the first time I complete a week.
Generally my plans are Monday, Wednesday & Saturday, with a Pilates class on Thursday, but due to other arrangements this week I've done Tuesday, Thursday and will be doing Saturday as well.
Can't say I like Laura's choice of music, although I thoroughly welcome it when she tells me it's time to slow down! Today my right shin is aching and my achilles is tight. I'm hoping a few stretches and tonight's Pilates will sort that out.
I hit a bit of a wall on run 5 of the podcast but after a bried stop for some calf and shin stretches I got back into it.
I do feel it's pathetic that I can barely run a minute without struggling badly, but I decided I'd do this blog to track my progress and also because I had a read through other blogs where people also struggled to start but have managed to move on to the next weeks and run for longer. So unless you're all lying to me, or Laura is posting numerous blogs under different names, then I should also improve as the weeks go on.
Onwards and upwards, with copious gulps of water during the walking parts!
