So this might be the wrong place to ask but is there anybody else out there who found that C25K wasn't going to work for them?
I had a couple of not quite completed sessions before managing week 1 but went on pretty well after that. Towards the end of week 3 we went on holiday but I packed my running gear and managed to make use of it. Did W3R3 and despite twisting my ankle managed to move on after a few days. The first attempt at week 4 I didn't quite manage but on the morning we were setting off home I was up early and did W4R1.
Back home things moved on and even managed the infamous W5R3 though I had to enlist the support of a handy lamp post before continuing on my warm down walk.
Onwards and upward to week 6 where I came unstuck on run 2 and about 3 minutes from completion of the second run I was attracting attention by having to lay down on a convenient grass verge to recover.
Since then I've moved on to 'free' runs and my limit (carefully monitored now) is around 12 -13 minutes continuous run which I can manage to follow with another 5 minutes or so after a short recovery walk. After that I'm done. Having logged how far I run in 12-13 minutes it's possible than my natural pace is a little too fast to sustain for longer at this point in my training.
I'm not quitting but am having to find my own pace now and have taken out gym membership for advice and complementary exercise to help me along the way. The initial aim is 2 gym sessions and 1 outside run a week.
A bit tough that having followed the plan I'm some way from being able to keep up now....sorry Laura, but for me you were wrong about me being ready.
