Hi guys, just signed up as I would love some feed back. I am curious about my next step.
A little bit of background. I'm a 33 year old male. I've never been fit, I couldn't even do the cross country when I was at school. I used to play a little football as a kid but only recreationally. Apart from that my usual exercise consists of long walks on my lunch hour.
So I start my couch to 5k plan thinking I'll never reach the end cause I've never thought I was fit.
Fast forward to week 5 day 3 and I complete my 20min run and feel great. I've not struggled (much to my surprise) through any stage of the process. I look at week 6 day 1 and see that we are going back to stop start running again. I'm not sure I want to go back to that. I enjoyed 20 mins and would rather continue that and keep working up with the non stop running to 30 mins.
What are peoples opinions on this? Do I stick with the programme that has got me this far or am I able enough to sort myself out now? Is there a reason for going back to stop start again briefly?
