So i just completed week 5 and logged in only to find someone else claiming they had just ran for 20min to complete week 5.
So the 20min running on my app is at the end of week 6 rather than 5.. anyway, i guess it doesnt matter too much what plan you do as long as you run the 5k at the end, right?
Anyhow I had a query for you all. I generally run on a treadmill and I set it up at 1% incline and 10.0km/h for run and 6.5km/h for walking. My question being.. say that my next session becomes really hard to complete, would you:
a) keep the settings as previously but repeat the session as many days as you need to until you are able to complete it.
b) lower the gradient to 0.5% or even 0% with the thinking that once you get to running the 5k on that setting you can gradually increase it back. So basically you stay motivated because you see progression.
c) reduce the speed a little, say to 9km/h with the same objective as b)
d) quit the plan and head to the pub.
Sorry that was a joke but what do you think, a, b or c?
