Strangely I found Runs 1 & 2 of this week harder than Run 3... hmm... that doesn't sound right.
For Run 3 I was all but power-walking I think, and that's why, BUT I was going through the running motions! I found it... dare I say it... pretty easy?!?! No where near as mentally/physically tough as last week's 20 minute run... I only started really feeling it in the last 5 mins which was amazing!
I don't understand how I went from struggling with 10/3/10 two days ago to being able to run 25 mins fairly comfortably? I think it must have been slow pace.
Today's walk/run/walk was 4K - I know I shouldn't care about distance or pace yet, just time (...right?!) - but it's quite interesting. I think my aim is to finish the programme and get to 30 minutes, and then my next aim will be to be able to run 5K (in 30 mins? maybe).
Yesterday I exchanged contracts for buying a house (hooray! imminent poverty!), so over the final weeks of Couch to 5K I'll be packing, moving, and unpacking...! Determined to keep my running up though; I think it will be good for my stress levels! And I can't stop now!
Still loving this forum What a great bunch of people.
PS. I don't understand these graphs at all from Fitbit. Pace graph makes it look like I was stopping every 5 minutes! Calorie burn one usually correlates to running v. walking ok, but today's has a weird dip in the middle! Odd.
