Two weeks ago I finished Week 9, I felt fantastic! Since then, I have ran three times a week completing 5K in under 30 minutes and I've been so proud of myself! However, half way through this week I started to panic when I was running; I was out of breath, my legs were stiff and every part of me wanted to give up but I carried on, finishing 5K in 28 minutes - I was so glad that the run was over. Then, two days after when I went for my next run, those feelings came racing back and at 15 minutes, I gave up and walked home feeling defeated and disappointed. I feel like I just can't run anymore, should I just give up? Couch to 5K was amazing and I loved every week running further and further but now I've lost total confidence and I'm at crisis point: what should I do?
