Couch to 5K

2 out of 3 runs were bad!

It's been one of those weeks so am drawing a line under it and going with start again on Monday's another week.

R1 - disastorous. More physical than mental

R2 - This one was OK and what keeps me going

R3- diastorous . This time whilst a litle physcial was definatley more of a mental challenge.

Going to rest up over the weekend, find the right mental attitude(not sure where it is hiding at the momement) and go for it in week11!

Which week are you following?

Do you think a change of route might help (providing you're running outside)?

Say to yourself "I'm beating so many people who are sitting on their bums, I'm doing this for me! I can do this!"

If you are having physically problems, maybe a rest is a good idea for a couple of days and just do some brisk walking sessions if possible.

You can do this. You are powerful and stronger than you know.

I hope your next session goes well.


Thanks 7-of-us. I graduated about 10 days ago so have been doing my own thing...just need to get my head back in the game really.

I will be giving myself a motivational talk before I go back out.

It was just one of those weeks but did feel the need to share my frustration.


Sounds like you've got the right attitude, drawing a line under the week and moving on to the next week. No need to brood on it I find, had a rubbish week of aborted run and no runs until Wednesday this week. Don;t usually run on a Wednesday but did a real starter type run and will be out there tomorrow again. Like you, I'll just move forwards. Hope next week goes well. :)


and you blueboots. it's just frustrating isn't it after we all did so well to get where we are and then you have one of these weeks. :)
