Week 3 Run 2 | Couch to 5K Program

I did my last run Wednesday last week so nearly a week since the first run of this set. I had a slightly haphazard Sunday where I was going to run but I had to go and visit a new client up in Tinui and then have a band practice so there was simply no time for it. 

Tonight we got out with the youngest two kids, they followed along at our slow pace. I ran the 1.30 seconds runs easy as, not a problem, slight recovery at the end in the walking intervals but not really breaking my lungs like the first week. The 3 minute runs were a challenge but I would say slightly easier than the last time.

I have some new headphones so that is a bonus although it was slightly disconcerting to hear my feet thud really loudly. Just as I was finishing my last walking interval I spotted some CrossFit whānau down at the lake. It was Mandy and Sandy, it was lovely to see someone else from the box running around the lake.

I didn’t eat any mosquitos tonight, so down on my protein ha ha. I also spotted a business associate down at the lake who cheered and spurred me on (thanks Mena). 

I’m dreading week 4 – we have five and three minute interval runs. This is where sh*t gets real.
