I do my w5r3 today which is the first big stint of running (20mins). I am quite nervous about this run. How did everyone else find it? X
Nervous about today's run: I do my w5r3 today... - Couch to 5K
It's quite normal to be nervous about this one. However if youve followed the programme you are ready for it. Although it is a big step up, you are now fit enough and your legs have done enough in the past few weeks to cope with the 'bit extra'. Go slowly and focus on how good it will feel when you finish. And dont forget to allow youself a reward. Good luck!
I was very nervous about mine too (did it last Friday) and I did find it hard - but I did it. The first 15 minutes were okay but the last five, and particularly the last two, were really hard.
What kept me going was thinking that I'd done 15 minutes already therefore was 3/4 of the way through and I was damned if I was going to admit defeat at the point and have to do it again!!!
I was due to do week 6, day 1 today but I've done something to my lower back (new mattress required I think) so have decided to have a break until Wednesday. I'm really missing not going! I never thought I'd say that about exercise!!!!!
