Yesterday I was reflecting on my C25K journey so far, and did wonder whether I can actually do this, having not been able to get further than week 5 even though I started end of September. In fact W5R3 almost finished me off mentally and physically. Before that I was excited to run each time but ever since that run I've been nervous and not really enjoyed it. So yesterday I did contemplate giving up, thinking maybe not everyone can do this.
However this morning I reflected on things I see and hear at work - I work in the local hospital. So many people have real problems and worries, that I became determined not to let C25K defeat me! So today I will try w4R1 for the umpteenth time, will slow down (even though I run like Tigger when going slow), and not give up! It may take me months but I am determined to get there. I find this forum inspiring and motivating too. Wish me luck!
