I have just started the couch to 5k plan after years and years of not being very active at all, in an attempt to lose weight and generally get more healthy. I've done 3 runs so far, but I had nearly a weeks gap between the first two and the last one, so I think I will redo 2 more week 1 runs until I move on. My problem is that I know I am supposed to be walking briskly between runs, just like I walk briskly to warm up. I just cannot do it, I have to catch my breathe again and this usually results in me walking pretty slowly until the next run. Should I be repeating the week 1 runs over and over until I can briskly walk in between?
Although at this stage I cannot imagine myself at all running for 30 minutes without stopping on a weekly basis, I totally believe that it's possible after seeing what some have you have been saying. I look forward to completing the course!
