I've completed the first week of training on the app.
Unfortunately I am going to have to do it again. I'm not ready to move on to week 2 yet.
In week 1 you run for 60 seconds and walk for 90 seconds. You do this 8 times. In week 2 you run for 90 seconds and walk for 2 minutes.
I am still struggling to run for 60 seconds 8 times. It's not my breathing its the pain in my legs. By the 6th time I just want to collapse and sit in the middle of the road in tears. I'm only managing about 40 seconds on the 6th 7th and 8th run. I don't see how I can push that to 90 seconds at the moment.
Really not wanting to do myself an injury I'm not going to push it. Hopefully another week of week 1 and I'll be ready to move forward. At the end of the day this is the first time I've run for 15+ years.
I really need to be proud of myself for accomplishing this first week.
I felt a bit down on my run this morning but I need to try and push that to one side.
