W4R3 Definitely more rhythm!

Yay! Definitely more rhythm now. Managed the 5 minute runs. Don't know how I'm going to do 8 minute runs next week. I couldn't get a sneaky 6 minute run in today. Too tired! On a more positive note the idea of running outside is appealing to me more as I do feel more confident but I'll wait and see. One step at a time!

Have a great weekend everyone πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  • You totally said it, literally one step at a time. Focus on now, not next.

    Slow and steady!

    Running outside, brilliant.. just go for it and know you can do it :)

  • Running outside is fun!

  • I love running outside. The fresh air, the changing scenery and terrain. Think I'd have given up long ago if I'd tried the treadmill (I'm not a gym member anyway).

  • Running outside gives you a sense of freedom that you won't get on a treadmill so maybe take advantage of this spring weather and go for it on W5. Good luck!

  • I've never "done" the gym. Hate it. It's so boring. My exercise of choice would have been aerobics then I did Zumba a few years ago and loved it. However the running is something I did at school and have always talked about doing and am using the gym as a means to an end. I go in put my head down and get on with it. I don't really engage with anyone apart from saying hello because I want to be in and out asap. Otherwise I would be there all day talking to people and not running!!!! πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  • I have been a gym member twice but after a promising start would never go enough for it to be value for money (which is their whole damn business model). It always used to boil down to going in once a week for a desultory 20 minutes on the crosstrainer.

    What I like about C25k is it's totally free and there's no faffing about with gym bags or travelling anywhere to do the exercise. I just go out the front door.
