Feeling the need to write something about today's run, not so much because there is anything remarkable to say about it but simply to record the event. More for my own records and hopefully as something to look back on with awe and wonder at my achievements. I can but hope at this stage!
Weather was cold but dry. Realised as I turned the second corner and headed into the wind that I'd left my buff at home as my neck felt the chill. But 5-10 minutes later this was a distant memory and probably not a bad thing.
I'm finding the 90 seconds of running hard. Not impossible but hard. Much harder than 60 seconds. Panting ridiculously at the end. Perhaps I should slow down. Mapmyrun told me I was faster today than last Friday. My husband was full of praise (from his position on the couch as he, the statistician, analysed my results) but is that a good thing at this stage? Perhaps I shouldn't be pushing myself so hard.
Some of the music's ok. Some not. I'm kinda missing "This is the greatest day". I quite like that. I found it motivating and got my 5 minute warm up walk off to a good start. Does it come back at all?
I have a weekend away next weekend so I shall miss two runs (Friday's - which should be W3R1 - and Sunday's - W3R2) so I've decided that Tuesday when I'm back, I'll re-do a W2 run and start on week 3 the following Friday. That keeps my pattern of moving on to the new week of the programme on a Friday. Also means I'm delaying moving on to the 3 minute run which I am completely dreading.
Well that's it for today. See you Tuesday for the first of my W2R3 runs. Have a fun evening.
