I don’t know the answer to that. On Tuesday I was tired, really tired so we gave running a miss and on Wednesday Kath was away for work and I don’t do running on my own. So I had a two day rest before heading out for 30 minutes after work yesterday. The first two running sections were awful. Legs felt heavy and I couldn’t breathe. Then it got easier. I found it really hard but I didn’t hate it. I had a little look around as I was running and I never felt like I couldn’t do it. I just felt like I was working bloody hard. I ran out of steam a little bit on the last run and couldn’t push for a little sprint at the end but we did do our fastest 30 minutes so far with 2.43 miles. I should have been quite happy with that but I was a little bit grumpy that it wasn’t faster still. We are running for 2 minutes afterall now so we should be going faster overall… So the 2 minute running thing is a bit of a mixed bag. It doesn’t feel like it is much harder than the 90 seconds running when we’re actually doing it but it obviously is and I am being impatient because I want us to be faster and the running to be easier and because I want to be able to do the runDisney marathon now.
Today my right calf muscle was been sort of niggly. Not painful but not just tight either. So no running today. I think my leg will be fine with another day rest but tomorrow we are supposed to do 5 miles. 5 miles! I’m not really sure I can do that. 5 miles running for 2 minutes, walking for 30 seconds -repeat a stupid amount of times… 5 miles. Yeah right.

We were supposed to do 5 miles today too but because we were up late at a wedding yesterday and are travelling all the way to London today we opted to stay in bed!! Maybe tomorrow lol 🙂
Hmmm, bed was very tempting (and I don’t have the excuse of a wedding or travel today! Glad I hauled my backside out of bed and went though! 5 miles is, I discovered today absolutely doable and I’m sure you’ll nail it tomorrow!
Wow! That’s a big jump from 2.4 to 5 miles! Still if that’s the plan. I went for a lope this morning in a gale. My slowest for ages. But I went and that is always the important thing. Onwards and – er – further onwards.
Yes. Onwards and further onwards – I like that. The jump isn’t as dramatic as that Ali – the last longer one we did was 4.25 miles last weekend.
