I continue to be amazed at how I progress each week - starting today’s run I thought ‘I only just managed the 5 minute runs, how will I run for 8?!’, but I did it!
When the time was up on the first 8 min run I even felt like I could’ve run a bit longer, and I didn’t feel that I needed all of the 5 min walk inbetween to recover.
The second 8 min run was harder, but I did it - the last minute or so was a killer though!
5 weeks ago I couldn’t run - at all. I got out of breath running for 15 seconds. If you’ve just started your journey on C25k and are feeling like you’re struggling or that it won’t get any better, I am proof you can do it - I’ve gone from struggling to run for 60 seconds in the first sessions to running for 8 mins straight!
Good luck to everyone no matter where you are on your running journey - I’m loving it, and so proud of myself!
