So today I started week 4 (I follow the C25k free app and not the podcasts so I'm not sure if the runs are slightly different - I think there are only 8 weeks instead of 9).
I was very apprehensive as I was sure I wouldn't be able to run 3 mins, 5, 3, 5. I was tempted to give the last repetition of week 3 another go but the advice on here was to carry on. So I did... and I did it! I was utterly knackered afterwards and very, very red faced but I'm so proud
The hardest part was I did it on a treadmill at the gym which I had set to 'virtual active'; it simulates you running somewhere picturesque in America with added inclines, and I did my last runs up an incline. It hurt but it felt so good afterwards.
Thanks for the words of encouragement! I can't believe how far my fitness has come along in 3 short weeks. Quite simply amazing!
