Eeeek! Week 6 Run 2 tonight - it's got to be better!

So, I am just packing up my desk to head home, babysitter due at 4.30 and I am going to go and do the second run of week 6. Please tell me that this will be easier than the first run of week 6? I found it to be dismal, I think I was so hyped up from doing run 3 of week 5 that I thought I could achieve anything but I really struggled to get through. I normally run in the evenings but I did it first thing in the morning so wonder if I function better later in the day so I guess tonight will tell. Hey ho, onwards and upwards and the main thing is I am still looking forward to it in a strange way! :)

  • I am just behind you due to start week 6 tomorrow. I just wanted to say that I usually run after work and my blips have come on the days where I have been off work and decided to get out in the morning before I start my day. Not sure if its just coincidence but I do seem to run far better after a day at work, you would think it would be the other way round. Good luck I am sure you will be fine!!

  • How did it go? Lots of (most?) people seem to find w6r1 much harder than w5r3, maybe for psychological reasons, going back to intervals between runs - but maybe also because the long run tires the legs out and they still haven't quite recovered.

    Hope it went ok.

  • I found W6R1 harder than W5R3 too! I think because I tried to push myself to run a bit faster in the first 5 mins stint, mistake because I was then tired for my second two runs. Seriously wanted to give up before the end of the last run, was huffing and puffing when I finished.

  • I'm back and in one piece! Thanks for your comments and support. I cant say it was easy buuuuut, not as bad as I thought, it was so nice running in the sun and I didn't feel so bad running against the flow of city centre grid lock traffic. I really felt I was pushing myself but was smiling and very pleased with myself when I reached home. Bring on run 3!! :)

  • Well done. :)
