I've been reading and taking everyone's advice on here from starting 5 weeks ago, but not often posted. But thought I'd share my little mistake with you all!
I'm on holiday from work for a week, so have the advantage of being able to go for morning runs. So up I got to go out for my Week 5 Run 2. I couldn't find the correct week on my ipod, so decided to use the app on my phone instead. So off I went. I got through the first mental barrier of negative thoughts about how hard this was, and by the end of the first session of running I felt for once that I had found a steady pace and when Laura said I could walk I felt like I could carry on (very strange, but nice feeling!). But I did as I was told and walked it. Unfortunately the next bit of running started with a hill, and I think that finished me off before I even got into it, but I pushed and pushed and pushed and boy was it a struggle but I kept going until a minute from the end I had to turn a corner and my legs just STOPPED.
After having read on this site so much support and advice over the past weeks I knew not to feel bad about this and thought of how far I'd come since starting etc. By the time I got home I had decided I just needed to repeat the run until I could do it. There's no problem with that. Yes, a teeny weeny bit of disappointment but I was just chuffed that I had run as far as I had.
I've sat down to read though all the new posts, and someone on their post commented that they found they were okay running for 2 lots of 8 minutes on Week 5 Run 2. Hang on a minute, I think to myself. Laura told me I was running for 2 lots of 10 minutes on my run this morning?! So I quickly look at the C25K wall chart ...... and yes, I was running Week 6 Run 2!! And have just confirmed it on my phone app - Week 6 Run 2. Doh!!
So now although feeling disappointed and rather silly that I messed up by running the wrong week, I've just realised that I would have actually have completed the run after all! (I'd run 10 minutes, walked for 3 minutes, run for 9 minutes).
(and when I say run - I mean 'plod' - especially in the final 5 minutes, lol)
I think I might still re-run Week 5 Run 2 though - especially as I'm totally scared about doing the Week 5 Run 3!
Bit of a long story, but felt the need to share
