W2 R3 = week 2 complete 👏🏼👏🏼
I really wasn’t feeling this today but have managed to get out and complete week 2 of Couch to 5K. Feeling rather pleased with myself although I am petrified of week 3 😬
I also found running with music so uplifting 🏃♂️ music 🎵 🎧
great work finishing week 2, Ive just finished week 3. Im always a bit nervous of the next run/ week but I've started to realise to not over think it, take one run at a time and at the end of the day if I don't quite manage I will repeat until I do. Hopefully confidence will grow with each success
I definitely over think things and my abilities. How did you find the jump to 3 minutes?
Hi Elizabeth I found it hard but I did it, I slowed my pace right down ..very slow and my breathing too because I tend to get a bit panicky and start to shallow breathe so I consciously slow deep breathes. It got to the point on run 3 that I was disappointed it was the 90 second bit because I was comfortable 😂. I have also told myself if I don’t achieve a run I will repeat it until I do as we can all have off days but so far so good, haven’t needed to do that yet x
Thanks for the advice. X
I have just completed week 2 aswell and I'm not sure if I'm ready to start week 3....3 minute runs sound like a big leap from 90 secs x
It really does sound like a massive jump doesn’t it. I think I’m going to give it a go and if it is completely unreachable I will repeat week 2. It’s worth a try though as we might be able to push ourselves more than we think.
Let’s do this 💪🏼 I’m going out Sunday to give it a go. When are going going out? Let me know how you get on x
I will be attempting it Saturday morning.....wish me luck xx
Look forward to hear how you get on x
Did it....even though I struggled but I was so proud of myself afterwards....good luck and believe in yourself x
I did my 1st week 3 and it actually felt good, hard but good.
Go us 💪🏼🏃♂️
Well done!!! X
Thank you x
If you did W2 you’re ready for W3. Honest it’s a nice week, because you feel as though you are progressing quite strongly. Good luck for W3
Ah thanks for the vote of confidence. We will see on Sunday if these old legs can do it 😬
Well done 💪🏽
I'm with you there, just did my w2r3 and nervous about w3 ....but going to give it a good go ! We can do this 😀😀
I'm starting W3 on Sunday. I run a couple of laps on my local common which has one long shallow hill/slope and one short steeper one. I've decided if I find the 3min runs a struggle going uphill I will just turn round and run downhill and walk the uphill bits!
I start week 3 tomorrow and I run a similar route to you with the bonus of a bit of a slope. Hoping that will help me x
18th October week by week thinking I couldn’t do it . I completed every run and seemed to get just a bit...
poo myself. Much prefer music. Wasn't a walk in the park literally but I now know to say to myself 'this...
I feel so proud of myself to have completed week 1. And I thought I would come and check out the community...
