Completed week 6 run 1 this morning. Rated my run 2 stars out of 5 as I felt a bit pooped by the end although managed to complete 5 mins / 8 mins/ 5 mins as directed. My question is this: is it okay that on my last run I should have run for 20 mins straight, but had to pause the app at 10 mins recover for 2 mins and then go again for 10 mins to finish the session? If I am honest I do not think I can yet run for 20 minutes without stopping so if I carry on with week 6 am I setting myself to fail again at run 3?
I know I am still improving, my recovery time after running is much quicker but should I repeat week 5 until i run for 20 mins or plow on as best I can?
