So proud of myself for completing a 20 min run this morning. It’s true what Sarah said, it’s mental not physical. I think I could have done a few more minutes... not many, possibly 3 or so. I usually go running in the evening after work but because I was off today thought I’d have more energy for the big run. Also noticed my body doesn’t ache as much in w5 as in the earlier weeks!
W5r3 done : So proud of myself for completing a... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
Congrats!!! You should be proud. Now please don’t look past w6r1 cause it has a tendency to bite.
Well done. I find that the longer runs r more mental than physical but i just keep kicking the gremilins away with every step and smile. X
How did you find this run? I completed w5r2 this morning and due to run 3 on Sunday morning! I am currently full of thoughts like what if I can’t run the full 20 mins x
There’s no reason why you can’t if you’ve done all the runs. I tried to concentrate on my music instead of the clock. Once I got half way I thought about 3 more songs to go. You’ll be fine as long as you don’t try and go too fast.
My body is moving better as well. I've lost a bit of weight as well so that's less weight on your knees. I usually go running in the morning but last night I couldn't get out till the evening. I was dreading it as I don't like running in the heat. However I supprised myself and did 5k quite easily. Happy daiz👍☺️
Well done. Great that you feel you still have a little left in the tank... that’s your body’s way of saying you are an athlete. 30 minutes isn’t far away now.
Brilliant! 🥉 that's your milestone run done! Such a great feeling. Enjoy 😁
