As I type this on the eve of my last week of this 8-week running program, I am excited to say that I have followed this schedule to the letter. Whatever it said to do on that day, I did - no questions asked! I believe that the program is setup for success, just the way it is, and I have seen it turn people into runners of merit!
I say all of that to say this! The last few runs of last week, I was tempted to veer of the schedule, and by veer, I mean that I felt the urge to just run the 30 minutes already (ahead of schedule). I mean, heck, I'm running 26 minutes at a time right now; why not just skip the 1-minute walk and power through? I'll tell you why . . . 'cause "Simon didn't say!"
That's right. I'm going to stay the course and feel the joy, just like I planned back on March 14th!
Until next time,
