I've been reading the blogs and questions on this site since I started c25k but I haven't had the confidence to put up a blog until now. However, I have just completed the 20 minutes run from week 5 and I am so amazed that I had to tell people who would understand. I think if I told my friends that after five weeks of training I have just managed to run for twenty minutes they would be slightly underwhelmed!
I really didn't think I would be able to run for twenty minutes but by the end I felt like I could have kept going forever! The first five minutes were the hardest and I did contemplate stopping and trying again another day but then I got into the right pace and it was fine.
I read so many posts saying that it was week 5 was achievable but I still didn't believe I would be able to do it. I am so happy!!!
I ran roughly at 10 minutes per mile and covered just over 2 miles in the twenty minutes.
