Went out for run 2 of week 4 this evening. Didn't start off well. Was going to take the dog but her lead was with the husband at his work. Got all my kit on & tracking app switched on but iPod shuffle was flat. Went back in to give it a quick charge then it started snowing.
Eventually got out determined to complete the run. My walking is definitely getting quicker, the running however, continues at a very gentle pace. 1st two runs are a challenge for the lungs (lots of puffing & panting). The 2nd two runs were a challenge for the legs and the lungs. Please tell me that it gets easier!! I'm almost tempted to repeat a week 2 run to see if it is easier.
Think I need to buy some running shoes. Popped into sweatshop at the weekend. The assistant was lovely and asked me what I was doing and if I had any problems. Apart from a chronic knee problem my answer was no. Unfortunately Sunday evening I think I started with some heel pain/ plantar fasciitis and a bit of back ache. . New shoes might be in order before I tackle the dreaded week 5
