I did the week 8 run today after having to stop for a 2 weeks and repeat week 6 because of Ill health. Week 8 is underway and i feel good. I have a 5k run on the 1st of April and thought i would have completed the programme by then but looks like i would only just be completed but not sure if I'd be able to run the full 5k. Feeling nervous
Week 8 done - Feeling nervous about a race - Couch to 5K
I've been so nervous but thanks misswobble. You're right, it is one leg in front of the other, but it's just trying to keep that going when you feel like you've had it. In any case, i can take a walking break if I get too tired. Hopefully I'll be able to run more than 30minutes. Thanks for the encouragement. Really helps
I'm doing a 5k run on April 1st too, with a few colleagues. So far one has been ill, one has barely started running, one has very bad shin splints. And the last member of our team is a serious runner who's done numerous marathons and will be done in about 15 mins, so will be under instruction to get the drinks in for the rest of us! All of which is to say, walking is fine. Walking, for most of our team, is inevitable. I'm hoping to run the whole thing (slowly), but even if I don't it'll be fun, and that's the main thing
5K races tend to be fun runs with nobody taking it too seriously. Of course, you will always get some who do, the one I did a couple of years ago, the winner was finished in 15 minutes, but most of us just sort of wandered around having fun! You will see loads of people walking some or all of it, families with prams and toddlers, and dogs.... I hope you enjoy it!
Hi Rainbowc, yeah, i posted about it on here. It went well thanks. I managed to run most of it really slowly. I finished in like 38+ minutes, which I'm pleased about. You were right, it was fun. The atmosphere was really cool, everyone was buzzed and the enthusiasm in the crowd was really infectious.
5k under my belt now 😁
How did yours go?
