So I just completed W3R2 . I'm further along because I only did 2 runs in W1 and W2 before moving on. The three minutes is just about manageable so I'll probably complete this week properly before taking a stab at W4.
However...I hadn't planned to tell my boyfriend about doing C25k at all. But, as I stay with him a few days a week it was inevitable that at least one run would clash and it would be hard to hide it. Plus I didn't want to use him not knowing as an excuse not keep up with the one day run / one day rest pattern.
So I told him...he asked a few questions but didn't seem overly supportive. I shrugged it off but when I saw him on Thursday I proudly told him I'd just done the first run of Week 3 - 3 whole minutes of running at a time.
He laughed! And then (give or take some extra words in between) proceeded to point out that his friend is doing a half marathon and that's about 2 hours of running. He seemed amused that I was so pleased with myself.
Again I tried to brush it off and told him that I wasn't a runner so it's not like I could just up and take part in the Olympics. He tried later to say he was really pleased that I was enjoying myself but it was a bit late and just sounded a bit empty.
I know it's just an opinion and he probably didn't really mean it in the way it sounded but I feel really down about it. To top it off he also practically made out last night at my job was a bit pointless after I tried to talk about a campaign I was working on and he didn't agree with what we were trying to put across.
I know I'm making him sound worse than he probably actually sounded but I think I just need a bit of a moan.
