Well I did it first time 😃😜😂. For me it was certainly the most challenging run so far but as others have said the issues were more psychological rather than physical. As I did the same route as before I found it helpful to IMAGINE I was having a walking rest over the section of route where I did this earlier in the week. Then I just had to run the second section which was almost the same distance as in R2, given I was running a bit slower. Overall I did 3k which appears to be fairly typical. Now for W6....
W5R3 Completed!!: Well I did it first time... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
🤣🤣 well done! It was a clever trick and you succeeded! now enjoy your rest day, you runner!!
In W6R1 walking intervals are back! No need to imagine them this time 😜. So go slow and steady and you will rock it!
Thanks. The first two W6 runs do seem rather easier but I guess are a build up for the next big one!
☝️One word of caution here! I was myself all chuffed after my W5R3 and our dear AlMorr warned me about W6R1, as many people find it harder than the previous one. And he was right, I found it doable but a bit tougher than the 20 min straight, I was happy that he gave me the heads-up 😉
Well done. It is a tough one but doesn’t it feel great to have done it?!
Well done strollguy! Thinking about it in 5 minute chunks helped me too. 6-8 and the last minute and a half I found tough. Kind of crazy that we are now thinking about other 5+ minute chunks of running as fun/ok when a few weeks ago we were struggling with 1 minute intervals.
Like E27 and Whatnog say, watch out for 6:1. Despite the warnings I went into it with too much confidence and speed and had to drag myself through it.
Onwards and upwards. Whoop whoop!
Not what you're looking for?
