So this mornings run. I set off about 6.40am was not feeling too great having come down with laryngitis yesterday but did force myself to go. The first 90 second run I found tough then the first 3 minute run nearly finished me off. The new shoes! I think I just needed to find my mojo and adapt my running to the new shoes which were different to what I had been used too with my first pair which were not really running shoe's but walking trainers! However the last 3 minute run was so good and so comfortable I was breathing well I could have run for longer. So W3R3 DONE bring on week 4 I'm flying people. ☺
Surprised myself : So this mornings run. I set... - Couch to 5K
Woohoo! Well done! Sounds like you just needed your body to get going post lurgy. Shortly about to start the week with a wk3 run. Bit nervous but if I do as instructed, I should be able to do it, right?
Definitely! I've just finished the second run if week 4 with a chest infection. I have to be honest, it's all about your mental strength with this, your body tells you to stop but you have to push through it! You 100% can do it! You just gotta listen to the instructor and take it easy!
It’s so easy to stop when you have a set back!
Honestly, as Breakingbenjamin said, the feeling of completing all the running sections can make your day! You know you can do it, so do we, believe! 😊
Am so thankful for your support (almost oscar speech emotional 😭) !
You going to go and smash that Week 3 run?!
Well you and me started together give and take a run. We will see it through to the end and I love this forum. Everyone supports each other we can do it. You can do it. Looking forward to your after run update. X
Yes we will! I’m not letting you not do it. Right I’m off!
Absolutely. Believe in yourself it's a programme to follow and just stay focused on ur goals. I'm telling you that first 3 minute run it's totally not as hard as you think it will be I promise you, you'll be so proud when you do it. No one can buy those feeling. This is for you go enjoy it my friend. X
Thanks BB! I think having an extra rest day opened a space for the gremlins but in a way, it’s good to have this battle now because I was bound ti have it at some point and the sooner I shut them up the better! In 10’ I’ll be off my sofa and into my running gear. X
