Couch to 5K

Week 1 - run 2: all better now

Three days ago I struggled to make it through the very first ru. I skipped the last 3 of the session.

Today - after some debating with myself a la: "If you don't go now, you're not going at all today! And you know that!" - I got going at a few minutes to 11am.

And it was sooo much easier! Thanks to the advice after my first post I did the following things:

- I ate breakfast (actually probably 2 hours before the run)

- drank water before the run

- very conciously slowed down from the beginning

And guess what? IT WORKED! I made it through the runs easily this time and made it even further (3,8 km)! Yaaay!

I'm very happy and looking forward to run 3 again! And this time I'll not tell myself "I'll do it tomorrow..."!

Great well done! Taking your time is very important especially in the earlier stages otherwise you will wear yourself out. Keep going, the programme will get you there. :)


Well done, now you can approach the next run in a happier frame of mind. :)


Fantastic and now you'll be motivated to carry on, well done :)
