PWR Couch to 5k Week #3 : 3 Runs and a rest!


After increasing the distance from 2.25 miles, in week 1, to 3.2 miles in week 2, I completed 4 runs in week 2. In week 3 i stuck to the same distance of 3.2 miles but by the third run of the week the calf muscles were struggling and painful. Sacrificing fat burning, I decided to take the hints from the body and stop running for a few days, to allow some recovery.

Run #4 Was replaced by two laps walking around Preston Dock.

Week #3 Run #1. Accompanied by friend, Stu Smith, with conversation a welcome distraction from a few aches and pains that I am still concerned about, but the end result was a steady pace throughout, only one or two walking intervals.
