Seriously, 20 minutes? Did run 2 today and those 2 lots of 8 minutes were hard...Not helped by snotty nose and wind... Due to go out on Friday for run 3 and am seriously doubting I can run for 20 mins non-stop. Did anyone else stick at run 2 for a bit?
week 5 run 3 jitters, shall I do run 2 again? - Couch to 5K
kutch - this is how it is: nearly everyone of us who posts here thought exactly the same thing on 5/2 The leap to 20 mins from 2 x 8 seems utterly ludicrous proposition. And you know what, to our utter astonishment ,we put on our headphones , listened to Laura ...and just did it.
Honestly, just go for it...you will amaze yourself.
Yes, you can do it! Have faith in the plan and don't give up! As Laura says, the biggest hurdle is psychological now you've come so far. I doubted it too, but was pleasantly surprised at how manageable (not exactly easy) it was. And the jump to 25 minutes is ok too!
That was a bit psychological jump for me - whenever I tried running before I always stopped on or before 10 mins, until doing C25K I never realised if you push through it, your breathing actually gets easier & you seem to get "on a roll" - you are ready for it!!
I wouldn't recommend running with wind though - as per your opening post!!! :- ) made me smile
