After reaching possibly my lowest ebb of my c25k journey on Monday, I come fighting back Rocky-style thanks to some wise words and a gee-up from this forum
Finally at the fourth attempt, I completed the 2x8min runs in Week 5. I took my speed down a notch as suggested and with a bit of grit and determination to come back on here with a success story, I did it!!
So thanks to those who replied to my blog of despair and the others who posted their own stories of achievement for getting me over this hurdle (hurdles? No I'll stick to running thanks)
I'll give it another go before I move on to the 20min run but feeling much more positive now, and won't be so hard on myself in future for having to redo a run or a week.
