Well as you are probably all aware this is at least my fourth attempt at C25K. Up till now all is well and I can report no new injuries or strains or random pains in any areas of my body!! Just completed W3R1 and the 3 minute run was actually enjoyable. The only issue I have is that I'm not looking forward to my runs. In previous attempts I couldn't wait to get up and get running. This time each run day is a real effort to get up and out of the house to start the run. Oh well I shall keep going and everything crossed this time I get to graduate. Thanks all
So far so good: Well as you are probably all... - Couch to 5K
Positive thinking will always help. You'll see many other newbie runners out and about in the morning daytime and evening. If someone's going about the same pace as you, say hello and run along with them. It can be better running with someone buy your side. Just a thought. 👍☺️
Have you checked this out..there may be some helpful advice there for you
Well done... set your gear out the night before.. plan your routes and maybe vary them slightly... and keep posting... we will support you!
I looked forward to every run when I started, got up really early and was out of the house as soon as I could. Recently though, like you, it's become a real effort to force myself to get out of bed on run days. The temptation to put it off until "tomorrow" is huge.
Once I've been running for a few minutes I do enjoy it though, I'm making fantastic progress and afterwards I'm always glad I made the effort to get out. I just have to remind myself of this in the mornings....
