So I completed w5r3 and was totally ecstatic, absolute rocky moment as it finished so stupidly thought w6r1 would be easy. How wrong was I?? Ran at 5.30 this morning and I really struggled. Could this be more because I know I have walks breaking up the runs? Don't know if I should repeat the run even thou I completed it? I can't be the only one that got caught out on this run?!
What's going on??!!! W6r1: So I completed w5r... - Couch to 5K
W6 is tricky. The problem is everyone is in such a high having done W5R3 that it’s hard to gently say “be careful” without seeming like a spoilsport.
Just continue to the next run. I’d still be on the very first run if I only moved on when it was easy.
Take it slow. Look forward to run 3 as you then have no more walking bits. That’s when I started to enjoy it.
You’re definitely not the only one. I really struggled on week 6 (posted about it) but found week 7 much better (posted about that too!). No need to repeat as you finished it. Just keep going one step at a time & be encouraged by all the wonderful support from everyone on this forum. They’ve helped me massively!! You’ve got this!
