Stick to my 10-week training plan to finally be able to run non-stop for 30 minutes without being tired. As I've lacked proper physical excercise for a while, I will run on Saturdays, Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. As for the rest of the week, I will do with just a walk. Main goal - increased physical endurance.Go to user profile
I am really worried about my runnig challenge. The temperature is not getting any lower, even in the late evening it's around 30 degrees Celsius and it's hard to breathe. I didn't feel well for the last few days and almost passed out today because of it all. I know that if I stop running now or make a longer break it would be much harder for me to achieve any further progress, but on the other hand I know that I cannot continue my present challenge right now without posing danger to my health. I don't know, maybe I should modify it in some way? Do you have any suggestions? If the weather doesn't change soon, I'll have to come up with some clever idea.
It's incredibly hot this whole week and it's raining almost every day. I've promised to stick to the plan some time ago but I didn't. There was a fierce storm during the weekend so I didn't run on Saturday and Sunday. On Tuesday I didn't run either as I was suffering malaise from the hot temperature outside. Yesterday (Thursday) it was also really hot outside but I decided that I won't let this terrible weather ruin my training schedule. I went out late around 10pm and became tired just after the first few minutes of running. I thought that maybe running in those almost unbearable conditions was not a good idea. Then I noticed a group of other runners and that gave me a push and strength I needed to go on. I ran 4x5min but was totally exhausted afterwards.
After I came back today (Wednesday) from my 30 min running, I realised that I wasn't supposed to run today. Ooops. BUT: I ran 4x5min, which was too hard for me just yesterday AND: I found out that I don't get that tired after training anymore, AND: it actually feels natural for me now to go for a run before bed. Anyway, I'll probably let my body rest until Saturday and I'll try to stick to the plan from now on.
Today (Tuesday) I ran 2x5min and 3x3min and came back really tired.
I didn't feel well on Sunday and decided not to run that day. On Monday I managed to convince one of my friends to run with me. We run for about an hour but she was getting tired really fast and we had to make many breaks so that she could catch her breath. That's when I realised that my training was actually working and my physical condition is already getting better.
On Saturday I went for another late run. 5x3min plus marches. Yay!
I forgot to run on Thursday, so I ran on Friday. I was supposed to run 5x3min but ended up running even longer. I guess I now have my favourite running route which helps me to focus less on where to go next and more on the run itself.
I went for a late run today (Tuesday), and did 5(or6)x3min run along with about 3min fast marches. When I started this challenge I really sucked at running longer distances and it was almost phisically painful for me to push myself to keep running. But it got a lot easier now.
As I didn't run on Saturday, I woke up early today and went for a 30min run. Again: 5(or more?)x2min along with fast marches. It was really hot outside and the sun was a bit dazzling, so I decided that I should stick to the late runs.
Today (Sunday) the weather is not the best for a run. It's lightning outside and it seems like it's going to be quite a storm so I think I'll run tommorow morning instead.
Today (Thursday) I really didn't feel like running, I was still stressed after today's exam and already a bit sleepy, but somehow I was able to force myself to put on my running clothes and leave the house. I ran 5x2min with fast marches in between and came back home tired but satisfied.
On Tuesday I went for a late run. I did 5x2min run with about 4min fast marches in between. The beginning was a bit hard but later I kind of got used to this continuous effort :) I was glad to come home after 30 min of training, tired but happy I finally did something to change my old lazy habits.
