I have completed w1r3 this morning and it felt good. I have managed to run each section in the pod casts for all 3 runs and have felt fantastic upon completion ( won't say mid way through though lol) my dilemma and fear is this, this is my third attempt at c25k and both previous attempts I have quit on week 2! I did so most probably that my heart was not in it? I got major shin splints running on forest tracks? Week 2, that extra 30 seconds seemed like an eternity.... I so want to make it work this time. I want to be a runner. It suits my lifestyle perfectly as an exercise. Since losing my dog a few weeks ago I am trying to find suitable runs that don't include our old walks in the woods as I ain't ready for that yet so hitting the pavements works better. My fear is that I quit both times at the 2nd week but I want to get to week 3 and be further on and have cracked it. So after all that waffle my questions are.... Should I redo week 1? Does everyone face the fear of moving up a week? I am sure I a perfectly capable of week 2 runs..... Help!
