Hi guys, first time posting, though I have been reading since I discovered you all. I've been using an app instead of the nhs podcasts. Today I ran my penultimate run, I had to run for 30 minutes. Previous run was 28 which I managed. I couldn't do it today! I had to stop 3 times for 30 seconds or so (walking). It feels like a chore now, I'm not enjoying it. I feel my body is just not up to running. I'm 42 and not overweight so I should be able. I've yet to find a route I'm comfortable with which is definitely not helping. I was loving it at the start, having not exercised for years.
Next run is for 35 mins which I've no hope of doing. But I'm so eager to finish the programme. I really don't want to give up this close to finishing. I'm not usually this defeatist! Any words of wisdom guys? Thanks so much for reading.
