I'm very new to this. I started running because everyone I work with is a exercise freak and I feel embarrassed and quite ashamed of my level of fitness. (I'm 28 and on the larger than I should be..). My boyfriend recommended this so I thought I'd give it a go. I am determined to master the 5k - but I'm worried it will take me much longer than the app hopes.
Basically, I'm currently on week 1, just completed run 3. I just need to ask - is it normal to feel like it's not getting easier? My legs still want me to stop by the fourth run (though I keep going obviously!). Is it a common occurrence to repeat runs/weeks? And should I really be wanting to repeat the basic week? Is it obvious when it's time to move on?
Sorry for the rambles! I'm just worried I'm not cut out for this! Thanks for any responses in advance!
