When I started this programme I would have thought that I would feel elated at the thought of having completed 4 x 25 min runs but I have to say Week 7 has been a real slog and as my running minutes have increased my distances (measured roughly on health app of iphone) seem to have gone down. I know it's not about the distance but it is a bit depressing to be getting slower rather than faster or even staying the same. At the speed I am going at the moment I would take an hour to run 5k if I could keep going for that long. Am I running too slowly? Why aren't I feeling fitter?
