So here I go. Day 1 of 14-week training program. I was supposed to do 5 mins easy walk, 15 mins easy run then 5 mins easy walk. Much less than what I've been doing. So we start off uphill through the very muddy woods (we being my best friend-partner and self) walking fast, which took us nearly 12 minutes. Then I ran for 15.5 mins, then we walked back down the road to the village. But as my friend and motivator Striver57 pointed out recently, it's a bit pointless walking when you can run. So I ran another 15 mins, up and downhill as poor partner can't run due to very bad back. Probably did another 15 mins in all, plus some more walking.
Feels great. I did some ST this morning too.
Tomorrow I have a 20-minute run with 5 mins brisk walk either side.
So I'll have to keep you all posted, which makes me accountable, which means I'll do this. Suddenly I feel really enthusiastic about it all.
Can I rely on you all to keep me going on the days I don't feel quite so motivated?
