having graduated a few weeks ago i was really excited to be running to my own music etc... how wrong was i! i completely lost it. i couldn't find a rhythm, couldn't keep motivated and i kept stopping at 15/20 minute. i felt like giving up and that perhaps i couldn't run after all. so i decided to go back to week 9 of the podcasts and it turns out i can do it! i just need the encouragement and structure of the program. i'm still working on running comfortably for 30 minutes, i was hoping once i graduated it would come easy, but i still find it hard - i suppose it will get better with time. this morning i decided i would keep running past the 30 minute mark to get my first 5km in, i did it in 36 minutes. i have a lot of work to do to improve on the time but im so pleased with myself for actually doing 5km so for now im keeping with week 9 and hopefully gonna progress onto speed or interval training on my own...
