I’m looking for motivation I think. I’m finding week 4 really difficult and it’s making me not want to carry on. A 3 minute run is easy for me now (which is mad since on week 1 I thought a 60second run was about to kill me) and I can do 5 minutes ok but by the second 5 minute run my legs are absolutely killing me.
It’s not even so much that I’m out of breath, it’s pain in my calves and thighs that makes me stop early. And then I’m so deflated by it that I don’t want to go out again and I’m leaving way too long in between runs.
I suppose the logical thing would be to do week 3 again? Would that help?
I’m a notorious “would rather quit than fail” personality type so I’m finding it hard to stick with the programme.
