Around 60 minutes ago I was sitting on my couch and I was very comfy indeed. I knew it was time to go for my second run but I caught myself thinking I could do it tomorrow! Then I forced myself to get up and get out second run is now done and dusted but I found it just as hard as my first run - I find it hard to believe that in just a few days I will be able to increase my running time to 90s. Well for the time being I will pat myself on the back for completing today's challenge. Will tackle the increase in running time next week - I will see how it goes.
W1R2: Around 60 minutes ago I was sitting on my... - Couch to 5K
I am in week 2 & struggling with a cold.i also cant believe that next week i will be running for longer as i struggle to run for 90 seconds!!!
The cold really won't be helping. When that's gone it will get a bit easier. You will surprise yourself every week.
That's how I felt through most of the programme, not believing I could do more than I already was. But every week I did, sometimes only just. But I always felt great the first time I ran for however many minutes. Take it one week at a time and you will do it.
Well done for getting out there!
Week 2 running is only one minute longer than week 1 running.....
I am currently re-doing the programme with a friend who didn't want to run alone. We started week 2 this morning and she was worried just like you but we did each run slowly and apart from the fact that the 2 minute walking break passes in the wink of an eye each run was completed.
Don't panic about future weeks, just complete each run as it happens, and you will be able to run for further and longer.
