Hi first post although have been lurking for a while.
I started off doing a different c25K app (which seems different to this one) but I was doing that purely on a treadmill. Managed to get to week 5 and then had a rubbish run and gave up. I restarted from week 1 and got to week 4 and then decided to carry on by doing it outside.... what a mistake! It was a million times harder!!
So I restarted again from week 1, started off well but due to work I can’t run 3 times a week, I’m up to week 4 (again) only running maybe once or twice a week if that. I managed run 2 but that really challenged me. Last night, after not running for a week I decided to redo week3 thinking it would be ok. I shouldn’t of gone as soon as I got out the door I had a stitch. Managed to complete a 3 min run before I had to abort and walk home 😔
Feel deflated, I know I should be running 3 times a week so that’s probably settin me back but that ‘run’ last night has made me lose all my confidence.
Think I’ll restart week 3 in the new year and try to commit to 3 days. I’ve signed up to a thing where you run 25 miles or more and get rewarded with a medal.
Any advice with failed runs and confidence being knocked?
