Wk 5 run 3, the one I've been dreading for about 2 weeks. The second half was better than the first half - I could easily have given up at about 7 minutes (what - do this again, twice?!), but it was all in the mind (thinking about problems at work etc, rather than the running) - I just didn't feel like making the effort anymore. But I knew I'd be really disappointed with myself, so kept going. And I thought of all the other c25kers on here who've done it before, and who said the first half was hardest (well I think they did anyway!)
Then lovely, lovely Laura had such encouraging words at about 10 minutes - I'd have hugged her if she'd been there - and I had a big smile on my face instead. Oh yes, and I quite like the music at the end, as it reminded me of Chariots of Fire!
When I finished, anyone driving past would have thought I'd lost it, waving my arms in the air! Definitely a good feeling, to get to the end. And legs feeling ok too.
I think I can see why week 6 goes back to intervals for a bit - I'm quite relieved, to be honest, even though I know some people have said it seems harder. I don't think I'm ready to face a long run again just yet. But - I did it - hurrah!
