We are so glad so many of you were able to run together on Tuesday. It’s great to start to set that routine early on.
This week we will be adding one 3 minute interval running interval to our two minute ones. It is absolutely essential we keep the pace very very slow so we don’t allow our heart rates to get too high, both for psychological reasons (so you don’t feel exhausted and worn out when you finish, and start hating it) and for physiological ones (as most of you haven’t run before, you need to give your bodies time to adjust so as to keep injuries at bay). Please let us know if anything is hurting. Most aches and pains can be quite easily addressed early on – it’s continuing to run on an injury that causes bigger problems.
We will not be doing much street running just yet, but please make a point of being very careful at the few road crossings we do have – it is very easy to just follow the person in front of you out onto the road without checking for cars or bikes, so please be careful!
A few logistical things for this week –
See you on Thursday,
