I managed wk 5 r3 - not exactly with ease, but without actually stopping. Then wk 6 run 1 came hard - it was raining and windy but I really struggled. Then had two day gap and today did wk 6 run 2. Managed both 10 minute runs but really struggled again. Think I might have gone too fast at the start and also had aching muscles from exercise class last night, but still - am very disheartened and not confident about the 25 minute on Saturday. Any tips/thoughts/encouragement??
And when should I be able to do a 5k parkrun in under 45 minutes? I only do about 3km in the whole 30 minutes at the moment - and that includes warm up/warm down walks.
