So its week 15 for me.
Last week only managed 2 runs, it was so bloomin' hot!
Joined local cheapo gym, so can use their treadmill in lovely, lovely air conditioning!
Ran 5k in the gym on Tuesday and loved it...except had set myself a speed and incline goal which I only kept to for 2.5k and than had to reduce everything. Walked for a couple of minutes and very nearly gave up but then selected a more realistic incline and speed and finished the 5k.
Why did that feel like a "failure"?
Ran 5k in a reasonable time (33 Mins 40 )...but just don't seem to be improving as fast as at the beginning.
At risk of being repetitive am doing:
Run 1: 5k
Run 2: 5k using week 1/2 podcasts but jogging when laura says walk and running faster when she says run...and then jogging to end of 5k
Run 3: Increasing by 0.5k a week (last one was 8k)
Missed run 3 last week......
Planned to do "long" run today but woke up with sore groin....
Do you think I'm doing a good enough training plan?
Am I expecting too much too soon?
Really thought would be doing 5k in 30 minutes by now
