Well today should have been my W6R1, but I skipped ahead to W6R3. Why??? 8/ Because from 31/03 i am doing the 5x50 challenge and I want to be able to run for 30 mins by Sunday. I can't do 5k but 30 minutes is allowed for the challenge.
I was very surprised that it went really well. I set off at my usual pace (not fast) and felt great going around. My breathing was good, in 1 and out 2. I started to feel it at about 20mins but then I only had 5 minutes to do so I carried on. I even upped my pace for the last minute as Laura suggested. I was really chuffed when I got home
I am planning to do W7R3 on Wednesday and then W8R3 on Friday. Hopefully everything will go ok. Then on Sunday I can do the big 30 minute run
I already walk a lot and I also swim 2km on my rest days so I'm hoping that I can do the 5x50 challenge with not too many problems. My running is always slow and steady....I hope to run 5km in the future but for now I'm concentrating on the 50 day challenge
I do have a question for the graduates.....Because I won't have followed the programme exactly can I still apply for my graduate badge? I hope so!
