Hi folks, first-time-poster here
I've nearly completed - just did run 9.2 today. I've always used Map My Run to check my pace and distance etc. I have been worrying a bit that I would not reach 5k by the end of the program, but I decided to trust Laura & focus on finishing each run, and not on going fast.
However on my 9.1 run I only went 4.6km (including the warm-up & -down walks). Today I decided to just keep going until I reached 5k, because after last run I did feel like I could keep going. Well I ran 4.65 km before I was too exhausted & had to stop, which took me 42 mins. I feel a bit disappointed that I'm obviously going so slowly & it's making me not want to graduate while I still can't do the full 5k. I feel like I should just keep running until I can do 5k in 30 mins, and then do the 9.3 run, so I don't feel like a fraud
Any advice? Has anyone else not made it to 5k by the end of the program? I was so looking forward to doing my first Park run, that's what I've been focusing on throughout the whole thing, so am quite disappointed that I still can't do 5k...
