Disappointed how tired I felt on first 5 mins of W6r1 after nailing the 20 min one on wk5r3. Good job I read on here that people have good and bad runs or I would be more concerned I’ve done something wrong
Hard run - appreciated warning : Disappointed... - Couch to 5K
Well done for completing it anyway, another run in the bank, which is good. I think week 6 is about consolidating all your good work in the past couple of weeks, and just maybe reminding you not to be too over-confident!!
Fortunately when I did week 6, I had really low self confidence, so actually I loved it
I did week 6 run 1 yesterday and it was ok but some people said on here that they had problems with it, I ran it and feel that because it’s relatively short run in the first 8 minutes it takes that long to get going with your breathing etc and that’s the problem with it, after 20 minutes run in week 5, onwards and upwards folks
It took me 3 attempts to do W7:2 different run I know but same principle. I could not believe it was all a mental thing, woke up one morning and said I’m going to do it today and I did quite easily, what’s that all about, I don’t know but just accept it do it again if you were not happy with it ( that’s what I did) move onto next one probably won’t feel like it again.
Cheers - I wasn’t scheduled to run til tomorrow but the night was so lovely and I wanted to put the bad run behind me so off I went on W6r2 and agreed - the first 5 mins again were hard but knowing that is normal I pushed on and really enjoyed it tonight - 2x 10 minute runs. I actually pushed the big grin emoji for the 1st time 😍
