I completed Week 4 Day 2 this morning and I have to admit that the running segments were easier, although still not easy. I got up a little earlier this morning because I wanted to finish the workout and be ready for work by 8:30 a.m. I’m glad I did because there was just enough cloud cover to keep the temps in the low 70’s and there was a small breeze. I completed the first two run distances in the appropriate amount of time and I even did better on the last two run segments than in W4D1, but it appears I’m really slowing down on the walking segments…what’s up with that!? I guess I shouldn’t be too concerned because as the program continues the running segments will get longer and the walking segments shorter but it still kind of bugs me.
My running routine will be a little different this week because I’m doing the Electric Run 5k in Charlotte, NC on Friday night. Instead of running Tues & Thurs I’ll replace Thurs with the Friday night run. It should be fun and hopefully good weather. DH will be going with me, although he’s not a runner so he’ll be waiting for me when I cross the finish line. Wish me luck!!
