It's a big increase in the amount of continuous running, but hopefully you are starting to build the stamina to keep going. Week 6 and 7 is showing you how changing pace can give you the rest you need to continue running.
Week 7 I was back in charge of the whistle, we had a smaller group of people because of holidays but was great to see everyone there. This week we increased the running to 5 minutes (efforts) and 2 minutes of jogging (recovery). Although we avoided the race to the gate, this week we did start hill-training, with an attempt to get part way up the mountain.
Well done on getting this far and your commitment. I can't believe we are on week 8 already, who know's what interesting routes we will find this week!
