I graduated in the couch to 5K in May (never run/jogged before in my life, that I can remember anyway!), had a break in the summer, and have been running 5K a couple of times a week for the last three months but I seem to be stuck! Tried the local park three weeks ago, took me 37 minutes, could have almost done that walking. Tried again today and I reckon my time will be similar, almost last to finish, so frustrated!! It’s quite hilly (and muddy) and it’s the uphill bits that I struggle on, usually end up walking, but on the flat and downhill I feel I could keep on going for longer than 5K at my own pace. Need some motivation and ideas for conquering the uphill, perhaps the only hope is to lose weight?! I am going to target losing a stone over next few months to get back to my healthy weight. Any other ideas?
