OK, so week 5 was tough and after giving it my best effort I ran 17 1/2 minutes. A little disappointed not to have made it to 20mins but on a positive note I am still amazed I ran for that long and i think I was right to stop as had nothing left. I did start running through to the end after thirty seconds walk. Not sure whether to go back a run or just do run three again after my rest days. Any tips?
W5 R3 Almost... but not quite: OK, so week 5 was... - Couch to 5K
I thought the same. I struggled to eight minutes on Tuesday in run 2 but Thursday night I did the 20 minutes at first attempt. The first five minutes or so were really hard but it got easier as the time went on. If someone had told me in 3rd June I'd have run for 20 minutes on 5th July I'd never have believed them. Believe in yourself and push when it gets tough. You can do it x
I agree it is soo hot - so 17.5 mins is fab. Have a few days off - make sure you are well hydrated and give it another go.
KN25 if you are planning to run tomorrow I would go super early as it's to be another scorcher (assuming your in UK)!
