I managed to get out and complete my final run of week 4 earlier this evening, and I must say that I am now finding it easier to recover (breathing wise) after the running bits, which is great.
Before I started c25k I really did think I would be struggling with my breathing and during my first few weeks I really was panting like I had only one lung and sweating like I had just stepped into a sauna! I am not getting that anymore. The only concern I have is my lower legs, which feel like they have massive weights attached to them after I have been running on them for more than around 5 minutes.
I completed my final week 4 run in the same spot as last time (parked on ASDA car park in Hayle and basically ran all the way round the car park and building).
I am dreading this coming week! I'm not so bothered about the first 2 runs of week 5 (as you probably know, all 3 runs in week 5 are different to each other, so you're not just repeating the same run all week like you do in the other weeks) but the last one is going to be a nightmare as I will need to run 20 minutes non-stop!! I think that is finally going to be the point where (for the first time) I will fall short of completing a week successfully and I will need to repeat it. I really don't feel that I have that much stamina in me at the moment and it's only 6 days away! Only time will tell I guess, but if I am right and I need to repeat the week, then so be it. Wish me luck...because I'm going to need it!
