Week 3, Run 1 Failed!

Felt really tired during the first 1.5 min run and then during the 3 min run..... as soon as she said I was half way through then that was it! Chest hurting, out of breath and energy and could't go on any further and had to walk back to the car. Disappointed as have managed OK for all the runs until...

Re: Week 2 and mind games

Hi Sheila,
Yes - sorry! My mistake - 1.5 mins (although felt like 2!) :)
Finished run 3 today so Week 2 out of the way. Week 3 sounds challenging with 3 min runs! HELP!
Still, 3 days off now to recover and get ready!

Week 2 completed! Good music?

Got through R3W2!
Thought it was going to be harder than it was.

Good tune was "Walk on the Wild Side" by Lou Reed. Those 90 secs when so quick! :)

Re: Run2 Week2 completed!

Hi Plummy,
Even hotter and more humid tomorrow! My son's sports day too!
I'm off until Friday now :)

Yes, need to sort out those tracks that made me think of the music instead of the running :)

Run2 Week2 completed!

far too hot in London today for running but had a half hour slot so ran instead of waiting until tonight.
Tough, mind games but seemed to go quicker!
Guess I need to sort out some "meaningful" music on my iPhone to fight those mind games.

I love running in light rain at this time of year. Nice and cooling! :)

Re: Cheated a little......

Thanks guys,
I started week 2 this morning and with the extra 30 seconds I really noticed the mind games playing up!
Saying that, I have had a lousy two days so maybe tomorrow night's run will be better :)

Week 2 and mind games

Struggled through run 1 of week 2 this morning and was a real fight against the mind games - since the runs increased to two mins. Sometimes had some real problems trying not to think of how many seconds left but just about managed it without giving up.
Hopefully run 2 will be easier.

Cheated a little......

Run 3 Week 1 was due tomorrow but as my little boy is with me all weekend I did the run today - although Run 2 was only yesterday. Wasn't as easy as yesterday but still no problems. My problem with running has always been Physiological - I kind of look to a point in front of me and get exhausted bef...
