After attempting W4D1 a few days ago at a jogging pace of 10kph and failing miserably, I was thoroughly disheartened. Not only was I unable to complete the run, I surrendered to the pain during the first five minute run interval!
Annoyed with my failure, I searched the corners of the internet for like-minded people and came across this site. Promptly asking a question for advice, I was surprised and grateful for the quick and informative responses given. Deciding to try the run again at a slower pace (8.5kph), I fired up the treadmill and got back on yesterday for another go - this time using the C25k podcasts with Laura's accompanying encouragement.
Surprisingly, it was the first three minutes I found most difficult - possibly due to preferring listening to my own music - however once I had got into the routine, the rest of the run was a bit easier. The last five minutes was a bit of a struggle with labouring breath but, since I had got so close to the end, I forced myself through the last couple minutes and felt glad that I had when it was over.
Looking forward to the run again tomorrow and feel more confident about completing the full course now!
Thanks to all for the warm welcome and helpful advice.
