Week 3 has been finished for a couple of days and I started week 4 already. As you probably already know I’m participating in the Start To Run by Evy Gruyaert Podcast to train for the 5K Girls Run (Meidenloop).

Day 15 – Lesson 7
This lesson was quite good. The weather was good and I am happy with the route. I wore my sunglasses, because the sun was really bright the last lesson. I must say, it was a lot more comfortable with my sunglasses!
Day 17 – Lesson 8
It has been raining on and off. Every time I wanted to go: rain again! In the afternoon, the weather started to clear up and I put on my running shoes and left.
Today was a real interval training, the minutes of rest were shorter: one minute walking and two minutes running. When I wanted to start my final two minute run, all hell broke loose. The rain poured down, thunder and lightning everywhere. I ran like Forrest Gump straight home! Luckily, I could finish my last run.
When I arrived home my boyfriend opened the door and (of course) laughed his butt off, because I was soaked!
Day 19 – Lesson 9
First time 5 minutes! I gotta say, I nailed it. But it took me some effort. I ran a bit to fast, I had a twinge, but after I started to focus on my breathing again, it disappeared.
3 weeks down, 7 to go..
I really need to make a schedule because I’m not sure if I can finish it in time…
These couple of weeks I came across a lot of people who are using the same training as I do. How are you people doing? How do you motivate yourself to finish?
