Exhausting 3 hour workout! W6R1!

Exhausting 3 hour workout! W6R1!

Hey guys!

If you read my last blog, you will know that I was unsure whether to bother doing W6R1 after finding W5R3 extremely easy. Maann am I glad I did it (thanks to all of you that told me to do it)! Gosh, I was dying! For the first 5 minute run, everything i have learned about pacing went out the window. On the last 5 minute run, I literally thought I was going to pass out. For some reason, time went extremely slowly! Ugh, I thought I was going to die. I have come to the conclusion that I HATE INTERVALS!!! Oh well, only 1 more interval run and then that's it, just nice long, slow jogs, just the way I like them. On a brighter note, my distance/speed was excellent, which explains why I was so tired. It's worth it though! :D

So what are you on about, "3 hour workout" Olivia? Well, I'm doing the blogilates 127 April challenge thing and I also did strength and flex week 2 as a warm up. The end total was an exhausting 3 hours!! Don't worry guys, I treated myself to a massive pizza hut meal, you can see my lovely pizza in the picture above (about 1000 calories, oops...).

This journey has been incredible, and it has been amazing getting to know you lot as well, with all your great support and encouragement. I don't know if I would have been able to manage getting this far without you, here's to a lifetime of fitness!!

:-) "Here's to a lifetime of fitness..." Love that bit. Not so sure about the pizza though!

Good luck with your last interval run, Olivia.


Well that is what this is all about, and c25k is just the beginning! Muwahaha, I'm so evil with my pizza! ;) we all need treat though eh!

Thank you, gotta be honest, I'm nervous!


I have come to the conclusion that W6 R1 is Laura's practical joke on us all - she builds us up with confidence with the 20 minute run then reduces us to wrecks with 3 - yes 3 - interval runs! It really seems to be a struggle for everyone.

Well done though on getting through it. Here's to the long runs :-)



Ah good to now everyone struggles with it and it wasn't just me (well, it's not good, but you now what I mean!).

Thanks, I can't wait for W6R3 onwards! :D


I have to fess up - I really did miss out W6R1. Did W6R2 and it was fine.Soooo 25 minutes today, fingers crossed.


aha fair enough, I was going to do the same! Glad W6R2 went well for you, let me know how you get on with W6R3, I'm sure you will be fine!
