I started couch to 5k 5 weeks ago as I have signed up to the race for life with my 9 year old daughter. I have never been a 'runner'. I sprinted for the school (cough 30 years ago) but could never run any distance even when I considered myself fit. So week 1 was terrifying but kind of addictive really! It has been a rocky road. My daughter isnt always keen to come out and on occasion I feel I am dragging her along. Today I have gone out on my own but failed to complete week 5 day 3. I feel everything was against me with flat batteries on my shuffle, ear phones dropping out of ears and then Laura telling me I had done 5 minutes then 5 minutes later telling me I had done 5 minutes! Its the first time I have had problems with the podcast but was a little annoyed. Luckily I had set the timer on my watch. Anyway I am waffling. I got to 17 minutes and was so very nearly sick I called it a day. I plan to repeat week 5 from Saturday and hope to complete this time round. I am a little bit (an awful lot!!) disappointed.
