I did 8k today and finally decided to kick the 19×3. I ran the first 3k along the beach and only walked twice because of the rocky surface. I ran the remaining 5k in one go!
Why did I abandon the program? I think I did this last week now 3 times and I felt it was more a mental blocker than anything else.
I feel I have reasonable distance (8k) right now and want to do this now for a couple of weeks to get used to it. I am running/slogging it 3 times a week and still am super delighted that this time I haven’t gotten injured.
In the end I have only one main goal: to keep running as long as possible and I have learned from my past mistakes.
