Hello, I have been doing the couch to 5k for the past 5 weeks but I had to repeat the 4th week as I didn’t feel confident with those 5 minute runs.
I decided to try and push past it and just launch into week 5 but I’m really struggling to do it. I just feel that jumping from 3 minutes to 5 and then 8 and 20 in 2 weeks is quite a leap! I have run a half marathon or two in the past - always at quite a slow pace, but for some reason getting back into running this time has been a chore.
I’ve been trying to make sure I get enough sleep and that I’m eating right but I still find I can’t move my legs to run for those 5 mins and I start to panic which doesn’t help!
Any advice from someone who has gone through something similar?
