Newbie to posting but constantly checking in to get some encourangement from fellow posters.
I am really struggling with W3. I could not complete R1. I have searched for some tips and all say to reduce pace. I reduced it to walking 3.5mph and running 4.5mph. Does this seem reasonable? I only managed to run for 2 minutes on both of the 3 min sections. My heart feels like it is going to burst out of my chest.
Also (this might sound really odd question) I am doing the training on a threadmill due to dark nights and I cant manage to do the runs without holding on at some point. I am a naturally clumsy person so I defo have the fear that I am going to fall. I dont know what to focus on while I am running so end up looking at my feet.....does anyone have any tips for running on threadmills? what do you look at? what is a good pace for jogging?
