I’m really not.
However, today at last I started on my journey to New York. I followed my schedule and ran for 20minutes at a “steady” pace (I have steady, fast, hard, hill and quality types of run and at the moment don’t really fully understand them!). However I did also break all the rules and move away from the training plan by putting an incline into the running machine to make it a bit harder, oops.
So, by running for 20minutes at 7kph, I managed the amazing distance of 2.33km. That’s 1.44miles. According to my schedule I have to run 1128miles. Oh sweet jeebus. That means I’m 0.12% through. Whimper. When can I give up?
