I'm feeling a bit disappointed with my recent progress as although I managed to run for 35 mins last run I only covered 4.5K. I find running for this time really, really difficult & can't imagine either running faster or for longer to reach the 5k goal. Also I'm a bright red, sweaty mess at the end of it so my self esteem is taking a dive! I was so pleased with the earlier weeks, especially completing the 25 min runs & now I wish I hadn't looked at the distance at all. I feel like I must be really unfit to still be this slow & need to find some way to get my enthusiasm back. I started using an app on my phone for the time /distance guide as I prefer running to my own music but I think I'm missing Laura's encouragement. Any advice on keeping motivated & how to improve? ( Sorry to moan as overall I think this is a great way to start running & I wouldn't have been able to do anything at all without the podcasts)
