Hello all! I am two workouts from finishing the insanity that has been my C25K experience. I just now decided to join this forum to vent some frustrations I am experiencing. The main thing that is frustrating and disappointing me is that at a 30 minute workout I am still very far from running 5 kilometers. In fact, I am running about 4 kilometers. It is a disappointment that despite faithfully following the prescribed workouts I am falling so short of the plan's goal. I am still a painfully slow jogger who is consistently lapped by runners three times my age and I still pant and get out of breath more than others I see running. I was always telling myself that speed and ease in jogging would come in time. I would appreciate the input of some C25K veterans- were you able to run the whole 5k in 30 minutes by week 9? Or did your journey to comfortable running take longer than the plan?
Thanks and best wishes to you all!
