I can’t believe I can now run 30mins continuously without feeling like I’m about to cough my lungs out or have my legs in pain for days after. My last run was slow and I only managed to clock in 4.34km but I felt great at the end of the run and felt I could have gone on for longer. So I am confident that I will be able to claim the coveted 5km after another few weeks of consolidation runs. Might also mix things up with some pace/ speed training and running at another park (since I’m quite bored with the usual park now lol) to keep things interesting.
After the last two months of being on C25k I’m still not sure that running is truly enjoyable for me. The actual running can still feel like hell at most times but it makes me feel so great afterwards that I’m a real running addict now. And my friends are probably quite fed up with me going on about how great the C25k programme is 😁
