Today should have been the first run of week 7, but after successfully running 28 minutes on Friday, I thought I'd go straight on to week 8 and run 28 minutes again. My legs however had other ideas.
The first 5 minutes of my route is a gentle incline (very gentle) but then I turned left and went up a proper hill. That's where I went wrong. I'd managed it before, on the walk/run sessions, so I was determined to do it this time. And I did, but it was VERY hard work. After that is a long gentle (very gentle) descent before another half a mile of gentle incline. I made it to 25 minutes, but then my legs stopped cooperating and I found I was walking! I walked for a minute then ran another 3 minutes until I reached the 2 mile mark.
So, a mixed result. I achieved what I should achieve in week 7, but not what I set out to achieve, hence the mixed feelings. I finished the session with a rather enjoyable phone call with BigEd, so not all bad
