I started c25k last week and completed the 4th session last night. I haven't found any easy yet, but my breathing has certainly started to improve. After sessions 1 and 2 I found it impossible to catch my breath and couldn't get a full lungfull of air. Sessions 3 and 4 were different, I felt like I was breathing cleanly, easily and I almost (almost!) enjoyed the feeling. My issue seems to be that my legs are just dead weights. I feel like after the second or third running interval my legs give up and I physically cannot go any faster than probably a fast walking pace (but jogging).
I am also dieting and tend to cut out all carbs, except fruit and veg. I wonder if its that im not eating enough or that I need to eat carbs before I run? Or is it that everyone has this and its just a part of getting fit?! If anyone has experienced the same, or has any suggestions I would much appreciate it!
