yeah just completed the final run, luckily the rain stopped just in time, headed outside, decided to take a different route, I can't say it was easy, I had the normal oh my god I can't keep going at around 18 minutes, but I carried on . I've started this programme many times before and have always given up at around the 4 minute runs, I really think the key is to run slowly, I'm never going to reach 5k in 30 minutes but the fact that I can just keep running for 30 minutes is such an achievement. If I had any advice to newbies it would be firstly don't look ahead at the programme, especially the week that suddenly jumps to a 20 minute run. Run really slowly and if you get tired slow down, don't give a second thought to what other people think of you, you could just stay on the couch!
Don't be put off by a bad week, your next run will be better.
I always take water with me, even though I never drink it. I wear an extra top, even if it's hot,I take it off just as I start feeling tired, it takes a few minutes to remove and I feel refreshed to be suddenly cooler.i can't be the only one to do these strange things.
You can do this.
Keep going everyone seriously if I can do this anyone can.
