For reasons best known to my MP3 player, when I updated my podcasts this morning, it decided to delete week 2. I had no alternative but to move on to week 3. Even though I wanted to keep on Week 2 a bit longer without the week 2 playlist I was scuppered, so onwards I went.
One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to start getting up earlier earlier than the “short n shouties”. Fortunately, today was one of the days that I managed it, which meant I could have a small breakfast before dragging the beast out of their pits. I had plenty of time to digest whilst completing my warm up routine ( running after uncooperative children), and having some food in my system when jogging made a huge improvement on my energy level.
For week 3 the runs have gone from 90 seconds to 3 minutes and surprisingly his increase actually wasn’t nearly as hard as the leap from week 1 to week 2
Whether it was from my fitness improving or the addition of breakfast, it felt pretty easy.
Week 3 came as a delightful surprise, when I thought that I had one or two runs left I heard the announcement that I was taking the last run, I was astonished and allowed myself an extra long cool down walk as a bonus.
The other surprise was the unexpected increase in stamina when it comes to keeping up with the kids who are natural interval runners, it surprised them too because I actually caught them!
I’m listening to Robert Ulreys playlist http://www.c25k.com/podcasts.htm
