I’m trying couch to 5k as a time efficient way to try and not put on weight and to improve my fitness during lockdown, when there are limited exercise options available. But I don’t like running (or any kind of exercise really!!)
I’m up to the end of week 3, and at the end of each run I do feel very proud of myself for getting through it and managing to complete it, but I spend the whole run thinking “Are we nearly done yet”, and counting down the minutes until I can flop on the sofa.
Particularly now the intervals are getting a bit longer I’m getting bored even before I’m exhausted - “urgh, isn’t the time up yet?! I know I can keep running but it feels like it’s been aaaages already...”
Any tips? Anyone come out the other side of this? I’ve been listening to music as I thought the rhythm would help, but wondering if audiobooks might help more with the boredom - although the app talking would become a bit intrusive to them then I guess...
