Can’t believe after a month I can now run for 8 minutes!! 😁 A bit daunted about the huge leap to run 3 though, 20 minutes! 😱 I will maybe will have to think of a flatter route. Even a gentle uphill is still a bit of a struggle, love downhill though... 😂

Well done you. All the runs you've done up until now have prepared you for the next run just go slow and make sure you're well hydrated 7 days a week 😊😊
Yes I am drinking quite a lot of water during the week now which really does help. And definitely slower than when I first started.. 😂 Its more strength with going up hill. Wonder if any other tips.
Yes, that was what I did this morning. Sat on the toilet with Footpath and mapped out a 3km route with no hills. Still totally knackered at the end though. 😂
Today was about 3.7k. Good thing about the same hilly route is knowing if i can make it to the top of the slope there is a easy run down... 😂 Not really hills on my route, just slight gradients that make it more interesting... But yes when the distance starts gets further i need to plan a better one. Today i had to start later due to the cut through the private golf course is also a school route.
Well done, and don’t be worried! Everything so far has prepared you for where you are now, so you can do it. I must admit I avoid hills like the plague 🙈😳😂
You didn't run for eight minutes............you ran for sixteen minutes and brisk walked for five.........there is no step up.
It is all explained in here healthunlocked.com/couchto5...
You can do this.
Not what you're looking for?

apprehensive about the next one and running for 20 minutes! It seems such a huge jump from 2 x 8...
