I finished C25K one week ago, and hope to complete the Race for Life next Sunday.
Since graduating, I have tried my hardest each run, but with little progression in terms of speed. When I have tried to run faster for a short while, something always seems to "go"(!) and I end up going slower again!
I read on here about people upping their speed but I just dont seem able to. I have managed two 5Ks so far (44 and 43 mins). I feel as if I have reached my limits in terms of distance and speed and wonder whether by persevering with 5K and building up stamina, this will improve. If it doesn't and I enjoy (!) running, do I need to worry. I feel guilty if Iam not pushing myself but Iam definitely a plodder, or as my grandfather would have said "there are racehorces and there are carthorses ...! I would welcome your thoughts
