first off, thank you to all of you out here on this here lovely community for replying to my last post and giving me support and a kick up the bum.
I know this running malarkly isnt meant to be easy but when you cant see the wood through the trees, its hard.
after a lovely weekend with the girlfriends (much sparkly and cakey goodness consumed....), i went back out last night.
my plan was, after much research both on line and through other postings, to do two 6 min runs. That is, i know I can just about do 5 mins, so up that about 10% (recommended increase) to 6 mins. I think smaller increases may help for a bit?
anyway, out I went in the light (first time) and I set my mobile phone timer to six minutes. Off I went.
i kept it going until I almost died at which time I thought bloody hell its a long six minutes. I looked at my mobile and it said 7 mins 58 secs!!! what?? Id only gone and set the stopwatch rather than the timer!!
well, with a smile on my face and a few tears, I went in to my walking section.
when it came to the next run, I just about did the 6 minutes I said I'd do. Wind in my face again making my eyes water.
so, what Im thinking, despite the program as dictated by Laura working for some people, its not working exactly for me at this stage. Perhaps a few more runs adding on a minute here on the run and a minute less on the walking then see how it goes.
i really want to be able to run, without thinking, and enjoy it
will keep you posted.
thanks again everyone for being out there
