Sooo…this week had its first “long run.” Now all you seasoned runners, don’t laugh too hard at me…but I had to run (gulp) 20 minutes. In a row.
Day 1: Quick intervals, not too bad.
Day 2: 2 10 minute runs. I get impatient around minute 8 each time.
Day 3: The long one. I mapped out how far a mile was from my start point and was determined to make it two 10 minute miles. I hit it on the nose! (This helped keep me from getting antsy like on day 2).
Whew! On to Week 6…only 2 more interval runs left until it’s all running, all the time.
