Running for my life - Zombies Run 5K - Week Two

Over the last few years I have dabbled with running, every time using Six to Start's awesome Zombies Run and Zombies Run 5K app, each time I have failed miserably.  I would diligently go out and try my best but I think the most I managed to last was a month.  I have no willpower.

I am a failure.

But that is not the attitude and I don't know what is different this time, it could be the fact I have bought a decent sports bra and a hands free dog lead which FYI is the best thing ever.  These two simple things along with some spark inside me screaming at me to get going has led me back to Zombies Run 5K.

Zombies Run is excellent, the combination of story and exercise, ZR5K takes those same elements but puts you through 8 weeks (with three chapters/workouts a week) of turning your lack of running to a whole 5k of running. 

Can I make it to week 8?  Well I thought if I posted to the internet my weekly progress it would help me get there.

So without futher ado, my thoughts on Week 2


So after week one I bounded on to week two, those zombies won't chase themselves you know.

This week I found easier, which was strange as I was running more, each workout had me doing a ten minute walk followed by 1 minute walk, 30 second run and 5 heel lifts that has to be repeated 5 times followed by a ten minute free form run.

The increase in running intervals crazily was a breeze to me (trust me when we go on to week 3 I will not be saying this), I don't know if it was the fact I was more relaxed about what I was doing or my downloading of some more uplifting tunes or the purchase of my shiny new proper jogging leggings complete with pocket in the back! Exciting, eh!?

Whatever it was, all the three workouts this week had me in such a good mood and on the last workout of week three I found myself continuously running for longer than I had before.  Dare I say I feel energised and ever so slightly smug.  I really felt like my fitness level was slowly improving.

Can I make to week 3?

Here is one of my "uplifting" songs, yes I have a thing for nineties rap!
