Friday night I decided to run along Swampscott/Lynn beach and it was a beautiful place to do it. I’m liking doing my training outside as I know that is where the races will be and it’s just nice to be out in the fresh air. Some of the 60 second runs I did still feel like I was going to die, but I think it might be getting a little better.
I am noticing a difference when it comes to training in the evening vs. the morning. I’m definitely better in the morning, but I know I won’t always have time to do it then.
Saturday, we were going down to Newport, RI to see my inlaws, so I brought my stuff with me so I could do day 5 on Sunday morning. I’m glad I did. It was about 65 out and I did a walk/run from my father-in-law’s house to Goat Island and back. It was so nice to walk/run along the water.
I was finally able to make it through the 60 second runs without looking at the time. There was a couple of times in my head that I was thinking, “OMG tell me to walk already”, but a lot of the intervals the program told me to walk before I was begging for it.
I’m going to do “day 3” of week 1 one more time and then I’ll move onto week 2 next. I’m either going to do it tonight or tomorrow morning.
I’m a little scared of trying to run for 90 seconds, but at least the recovery period is a little longer (2 minutes instead of a minute and a half).
