Run 1 of week 6 was good felt OK and felt stronger on the slight inclines, after the run I was looking forward to Run 2.
Run 2 not so good. First time I have failed to keep running! Decided upon a different route as in the main it would be flatter for longer. Did the first 10 min run and was OK, glad when it had finished as I am still getting very out of breath (and I don't run fast in fact I would call it slow). Set off for the second 10 min run, legs felt very heavy and bottom of calf was feeling pretty tight (this has been niggling for a couple of weeks now). Anyway continued along the flat OK, after 4 mins turned a corner and had to run up a steep incline and the WIND, well it was like stepping into a wind tunnel! I managed to keep moving for about 50 yards and then just had to stop running. Continued to walk as the incline reduced and when I was back on the flat after about 2 mins of walking started to run again, but could only run for approx another 2 mins before having to give up again! Continued to walk for the duration of the podcast. Felt very annoyed and dejected as this is the first time I have not completed the runs.
Can someone please advise if I should go back to repeating week 6 from the start or just try run 2 again in a couple of days?
I have to say week 5 and week 6 have been very hard and I have found them less enjoyable than previous weeks. I will not give in though, not yet anyway!
Any advice much appreciated. Good luck to everyone on your runs this week.
