So intimidated. I've been fairly okay with the last four weeks, but as some critics have said, week five is a huge wall to success for many doing this program. From bits of running to ending wk5 run 3 by doing a solid 20 minute run? I'm determined to get to this but reality is, after discussing this with my physical therapist, who helped me with my torn MCL and helps me with other issues, even she's of the opinion that jumping from 8 minutes to 20 is not a well considered progression in the program. Her advice was they should have at least increased from 8 to 12 to 15 then 20 while decreasing walk times. She's willing to do that run of 20 minutes with me, might let her.
I've tested my limits and so far 9 minutes is my longest non program run. I love the sweat and sense of accomplishment each run offers but 20'minutes, ooof!
Any sage advice for week 5?
