Found a break in the weather so got out and did the 2nd run. Found it hard going, maybe even tougher than the first run.
I ran around the football pitches near where i live and i think all the rain made the ground very heavy. The last few runs were very slow but i got them all done.
My breathing was ok, only really felt it for the last 2 runs. Legs still aching but bearable. Plenty of stretches done.
Looking forward to Thursday.
This seems impossible to me right now, we'll see.ausgirlscouchto5ks wrote:Fantastic all of you, believe me within 2 months you will be jogging straight for 25 minutes, then on to 30!
As inhave probably already said in about 30 other posts I couldnt finish week 1 run 1 but i not only ran the 20 minutes with ease inthen did another 10 minutes straight after on a hill interval thing on the road bike haha. Just stick at it mate, totally worth it.
Well, that was a bit like like running into a wall.
Completed all the runs, albeit the runs into the wind were more of a walk/stumble.
I dont feel like ive improved since run 1, should i ?
Wondering wether to do week 1 again or have a go at week 2.
Done it !!
Completed all 6 runs. Didnt really find it harder than week 1 runs. Legs felt heavier for the last 3 runs but got through it.
Ran for the 1st time in the street instead of around the football pitches. Didnt find it any harder, might be aching more tomorrow. We'll see.
Like a few of you I started Get Running on New Year's Day, am doing week 2 run 2 tomorrow and am really enjoying it, am thinking of joining a running club and building up to a half marathon sometime this year. I am a type 1 diabetic (insulin dependent) and would value any tips from fellow diabetics to keep my blood sugars under some sort of control on longer runs, any advice would be much appreciated!
Just got back. Went ok. Still cant feel me making any real progress. The last 2 or 3 runs are a real struggle but i do get through them, just !
How did you go johntownfan? The thought of running a real race of some sort is brilliant and is definitely something to aim for.
