Today I completed my second run of week 7 which I'm delighted about. It certainly felt easier than the last 2 runs and at that last minute when Laura suggests speeding up a little I found I was able to stride out a bit.
For the first time I tracked my run to see how far I had gone and was a little disappointed to find I was well short of the 5km target. I managed just under 2.8km in that time so it confirms that I'm going at a snail pace! I came here to see what I was 'doing wrong' and have seen lots of comments about the fact I should concentrate on just completing the runs and worry about the distance later on, which is what I shall try to do. It does mean that I have a target after the 9 weeks is up, so hopefully that will give me some motivation to carry on running.
