It is...:) So, stick with it.. slow down, relax into the runs and begin to find that happy pace...as the runs get longer you will find that it all comes together wonderfully!

Well done!

Walks are our saviour. The programme knows Best. stick to it and do the walks! They're there for a good reason as you'll find out as the sessions get harder

It takes most people about 10 minutes to warm up and settle their breathing, so yes a break at that stage is a bit annoying, but don't worry, you don't get any more walking breaks.......... running all the way from now on.

Well done, runner.

Week 6 is a feisty little sucker, but this is giving you the strength for W7 and beyond. Well done and happy running

The programme works. I have a sneaking suspicion that walk is there to show us we can and really WANT to run a longer continuous time.

Kinda removes those last lingering doubts about graduating and beyond :)

Definitely stick with the programme. I remember feeling a little deflated with week 6 after completing Week 5 Run 3. But the programme is carefully designed to make sure you are successful and hopefully injury free. You'll be more than ready for week 6 run 3. :-)
