I have just started week 5, (yesterday) and I’m still just jogging rather than running. I’m not going at any particular speed just.....jogging. My fitness is improving but should I be properly running now? (If that makes sense) I don’t want to be out of puff and not be able to do the next run after the walk. 🏃♀️
How fast should I run? : I have just started... - Couch to 5K
Your doing just fine. Keep on jogging. Keep at your current pace for the remainder of the C25K plan. You should be able to comfortably have a conversation at your jogging pace. You will have plenty of time to start working on increasing pace once your finished. Well done on your success so far.
Sounds like your mindset is perfect right now... you’re running, you’re not out of puff... that’s how this plan is designed to be run.
Speed work comes weeks/months after this plan, and only if you want it to. If you go down that route then it should remain the occasional way to run.
There’s no too slow, but it’s too fast if you’re struggling for breath. Great job so far, carry on just like that. Happy running.
