Having nearly completed week 2 of the B210K programme, I was really getting into a routine with the runs and looking forward to getting out every other day. Last Monday I had a great W2R2 (extended by a couple of minutes to reach the 6.5K mark), but then a spanner appeared in the works in the shape of a really bad cold which stopped me going out. It got worse all week till finally I gave up and spent the whole of Friday alseep.
I was much better on Saturday and even better again yesterday, so I decided to go and have a go at W2R3. I resolved to take it easy and just see how far I'd get. It fairly soon became obvious that my lungs weren't as much better as I'd thought, as my breathing wasn't as easy as it usually is. The first 10 minutes are always hard, but it usually gets easier after that. And it didn't yesterday. So after 20 or so minutes, when my route took me close to my house, and a horrible stitch was setting in, I did the sensible thing and stopped.
So I'm now really keen to break Laura's Golden Rule #1 and go out again tonight. Do you think that would be stupid, or would I be OK, given that I only did a relaxed 20 minutes yesterday?? My problem is that I have other commitments on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, so if I don't go tonight I won't be able to go out again till Thursday, and I really don't want to have to wait that long... (And those commitments would mean I would HAVE to have 2 rest days after tonight's run anyway...)
All thoughts welcome...
