Hello everyone, I just completed the 3rd installment of week 8 of the Couch to 5K plan, and for the first time decided to try out using a pedometer. At the end of the run though, I checked it and was slightly dismayed to see that I had apparently run only 1.29 miles... Even though I am a consistent runner and had completed the run with (relative anyway...!) ease. This might be an obvious question, but it surely should have been more than that? The pedometer is second-hand and I wore it attached to my leggings underneath a big chunky hoodie. Could any of these factors have affected it? Or did I really only run less than a mile and a half?!
Like I said.. Feel a bit silly asking this question! But am I right in thinking that by this point in the programme it should have been much closer to 5k?
Thanks in advance for the help! Just a bit disheartening that's all!
