Wow. I was really worried about it. Before I went out last night to do the run, my legs ached and I seriously doubted my ability to run for 20 mins. The achy legs were all in my mind, as I was well rested. Anyway off I went, really quite afraid, and I hadn't felt like this before on previous runs. I did choose a route that had a couple of nice downhill bits to it! I went at a snails pace and after only a few mins I thought I can't do this,why am I putting myself through this etc etc after laura announced I had run for 5 mins, I thought oh lord, only a quarter through! But somehow after I kept going it got easier or I went into a trance or something! Next thing I know I am done! It's true what everyone says, trust yourself, trust the programme. X
I did it! Week5 run3!!: Wow. I was really... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
Like you just completed week 5 run 3 today. Surprised myself too and very proud as I am 52!
Hey, well done you too! Haven't even looked at what's in store for week 6. Have you?
Great job, you persevered and rocked it! Well done you.
Well done you
Great news! It's such a confidence booster this run, it ally gives you the mental wings to go further and further
Well done ! I completed this run today too - doesn't it feel great ?
Well done, I did this one today too! There are quite a group of us, I haven't looked ahead, I did the program last year but other than wk5 run 3 I can't remember what comes next, I like to just go out and see what happens, otherwise I might stress out about what the next step is. Definitely a confidence booster this one.
I think you are right bizzyb! It's a double edged sword knowing what's coming up! On the one hand the fear and dread I felt about the 20 min run nearly put me off but then again I had read so many people on here saying they had thought the same and managed it. I think I would have died on the spot if I plugged in the earphones un-prewarned and heard Laura telling me I had to run 20 mins after only having done 8 mins in the previous run!
It's a good feeling though. Just completed it this
Morning and feeling good.
Well done, it's a great feeling isn't it?
I just completed this run today, it feels great doesn't it. Well done!!
