Just completed week 3. I am considering doing another week 3 run though as I think I might have only done 5 lots of running when I did my Friday run. Today I definitely had to fight to complete the last run.
What does everyone think?
Also on my last two runs I have drank as glass of water before heading out and had stitch both times so I might stop doing it. On a positive note it was great getting up this early running in lovely sunshine along quiet streets- even said good morning to another runner!
I have just completed week 2 and I am now armed with a 6 quid casio watch I tried a new route on Thursday and got a little lost. It was only because I was running with my phone I was able to look at a map and get my bearings.
Main areas of concern at the moment are:
Pace - Am I running too slowly/is my stride long enough? Breathing - My breathing seems quite shallow at the moment, is there a technique to this? Route - Really need to sort out a good route. I identified one but never do the second half as it is mainly next to a main road.
Glad I made myself go this morning, almost didn't.
First week completed. I had hoped to be starting week two today but only managed to run once in the week. I did consider skipping the final session of week 1 and jump to running for 2 mins before breaking but 7 lots of those will be quite a challenge I think. I finished today's session by running for 2 mins which I can definitely feel in my hamstrings now. First time running in the rain which was fun.
I have just started this today. I may have done more than 8 lots of running as I lost count. Going to go again on Tuesday evening I think. My objective is to be able to run for 30 mins continuously. I didn't sweat as much as I thought I would which I hope is a good sign?
Might have to invest in a cheap digital watch too as my analogue Seiko can be a bit tricky to read.
