Week 6


I am on week 6 of the couch to 5k and love it! I cant believe I am now running for so long. When I started I thought I wouldn't get through the first 90seconds but did my first 20minute run last week and found it easier than that first run on the plan! How is everyone else doing?

  • Well done! I remembered that first 20 minute run as one of the hardest!

  • Thank you! There are good runs and bad the same with anyone I suppose, but I have finally learnt to push myself through the difficult ones and persevere. How far are you running now?

  • Yes, it was one of my hardest runs, but determination and perseverance as you say, helps you through, and helps in future running. I suppose it's conditioning the mind that makes us push on..😊

  • It definitely does become more of a mental challenge!
