Just finished R2 w9 slightly easier then R1 although I have found the first ten minutes of each run the hardest? I have signed up for The Park Run to combine it with my graduation run, hopefully pressures on now as I've told friends and work colleagues.

Couch to 5K
I always find the first ten minutes of a run the hardest. It takes the heart and lungs and muscles that long to sort themselves out and get into a comfortable rhythm.
Great job short legs you'll smash your final run. Good luck it sounds like you've found your pace
All the best for your Graduation run! you'll be fine , parkruns are great!! go at your own pace and enjoy the moment, i did my graduation at a Parkrun too! And the first 10 mins are Definitely the worst for alot of people, you're not alone there!!!
Congratulations , & all the best with the park run enjoy
Still don't enjoy those first 10 mins but know that if i can get past that without stopping it all gets ok.
Here's fingers crossed then!
ooh, hello shortlegs1! I'll be doing W9 R2 tomorrow, and I'm also hoping to graduate with a park run this Sat (on my birthday!)...I've also told everyone I'm running, so I have to do it now!
Absolutely agree that the first 10 mins is hardest, though I think that at least knowing that there is this long warm-up period (and mental barrier?) makes it easier to push on through...once those 10 mins are up I know I can continue and complete the run!!!
Good luck to you too SB, you can spur each other on knowing you're both park runners and (post run), graduates too!
Hi sl1, go for it! Well done for going the distance ooh so close to graduating - sooo exciting!
Yeah well done - best of luck
Thank you Ej
