Week 7? I’ve made it that far? Oh yes I have. I’m pretty sure I could have walked it just as quickly, but I ran it.
Here was the schedule this week:
Day 1, 2 & 3
Walk – 5 minutes
Run – 25 minutes
Total Walk = 5 minutes + however long it takes to get home.
Total Run = 25 minutes
It hasn’t become easy, but there is a change that happens about halfway through the run – easier breathing, a sense that I will, indeed, be able to make it. Over the next two weeks, the time increases a bit, until I am running for 30 minutes. I have no idea what my pace is or anything, but I did get faster in week 7 – I know by how soon I reach landmarks.
I also finally went to the doctor about the sore throat I had for four weeks! Turns out it’s likely to be allergies. I’m on a nose spray & it seems to be doing the trick. No more sore throat & I’m feeling pretty good. Now to deal with my sore heel. I’m hope some shoe inserts will do the trick. I know that it’s particularly bad because of wearing summer shoes – flip-flops aren’t great for those of us with bad feet.
The adventures of Week 8 have already begun – I’ll tell you all about it next week.
