After great advice on here, I decided to just enjoy my run yesterday and not worry about pace. With that in mind, I tried a different route with some inclines (can’t really call them hills in East Anglia!) The C25k app paused twice in the warm up and had stopped again when I started running, so I gave up with it and used Strava for my planned 30 minute run. I increased my pace in the last couple of minutes and when my 30 minutes run time was up, to my great surprise and delight, I had still managed to run 5k! Feeling accomplished 💪🏻
3rd post grad run - it’s finally getting easie... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
Congratulations on a great 5k run. As I remember it some of the humpback bridges were pretty steep. I actually find long small inclines worse than steep short ones and I think they should put a crawler lane in my local trail. You’re certainly developing post grad, keep enjoying it.
Well done, it seems like it's finally coming together for you! I found that I started to enjoy it more when I stopped relying on the app, and just switched Strava on, with 500m chines to tell me how long i went. Nowadays, I tend to just plan a route, put on some music and go.
Sounds like a good way to go. I’m not very tech minded, so I have to keep looking at Strava 😂 I’ll have to look into the settings to make life easier.
Just before you press go, look in the settings: it will give you the option to be told about your distance. Have you joined the NHS c25k group on there?
Thank you! I’ll try that tomorrow morning. I didn’t realise I could also join a group on there. Thanks for the info. I’ll look at that too. I love this site! So much great advice, support and inspiring posts 🙂
Congratulations. Enjoy your next run 🏃♀️ cx
