wk5 run2

Disaster. Ran wk5 run 1 and really enjoyed it, amazed myself at being able to run for 5 mins let alone 3 sections. Just got back from run 2, managed the first 8 mins then when Laura said 60 seconds to go to the end of the second run I could not go another step. So only managed 7 mins. Usually I have run in the morning, but today went mid-afternoon. Very warm and had to go up a hill I have been avoiding. Will try again in Friday - not going to let 8 minutes beat me!

You've got the right attitude. You'll do it next time when it's not so warm and it's "your" best time. Well done.

Well done - you ran longer than you have run before....I have just run run 2 and that last 60 seconds were the longest ever! You will be fine on Friday..

That's not a disaster, that's a tiny glitch! You ran most of it didn't you? 8 mins and then 7 mins? you couldn't do that a few weeks ago could you? I'm sure afternoon heat would scupper me too, you'll crack it next time.

Everyone has bad runs. Like when you gain physical endurance by pushing when your tired, mental endurance is gained when you carry on when you are disheartened.

Try a flatter route. It's couch to 5k not couch to 5 hills!
