I've been running 3 x a week since end of May using c25k. I still cant run longer than 5 minutes. I know I physically can but theres something in my head that tells me to stop. I've tried different music, audio books, run buddy and different locations. It gets to the point I just want to cry (and sometimes do). I've done a few 5ks walking/running and have another one this weekend. I dunno how I'm gonna do it as my head seems to be getting worse rather than better. I've signed up to Great South Run 5k next month and if I wasn't being sponsored I'd pull out as it seems a step too far.
I look forward to running and think it'll be easy but as soon as I get out there I break down. Maybe I was a failed athlete in a previous life haha
