Hardest run so far! Week 6, run 2

Ugh. I think that was the toughest so far. walk 5 run 10 walk 3 run 10 walk 5

Harder even that the full 20mins run at the end of week 5.

I did 4.52km, so maybe was pushing myself a bit too much. It's also 27 degrees and quite humid!

But nowhere did I feel the 'yes i can do this' buzz from just about all other runs. But I did finish it. And feel satisfied for having done that.

I guess just keep going!

I think stopping running to walk then running again disrupts your rhythm, however if I remember rightly that is your last run, walk, run. So well done for finishing it and its all running from now on good luck :-)


Well done!

'maybe I was pushing myself a bit too much' - sounds very likely - maybe ease off a little bit for the longer runs to come, so you can enjoy it a bit more? It's much easier to get yourself out there if you know you'll enjoy some of it! :)

27 degrees sounds pretty tough too. It's just 2.4 degrees here (that's with a point in between the two digits!) Brr!
