Week 4 Day 2 Done

 #c25k Week 4 Day 2 DONE. It's a cold and windy day and set to get colder and windier, but I'm glad I did run (no choice really) and now I feel great. The last 5 minute run was hard and I nearly gave up with 2 minutes to go, but I thought I've got this far what would have been the point of giving up now?

My breathing on the runs seems to be getting more even and relaxed but maybe this is down to me running slower,not quite sure yet. Quite a tough run that did seem harder than monday's (day one of week 4), but I suppose there are many factors that can affect a run, not just if my legs have recovered fully from the last run. For the first time my legs are actually aching this morning, that hasn't been the case so far.

It doesn't feel at this point that I am ready for week 5 of c25k,the increase in minutes does seem like madness and the Great North Run seems an impossible goal at this point, however I look at how much I have progressed from week one (keep telling myself I'm only 4 weeks in) and that does feel good.  I am strangely enjoying it, get a great buzz afterwards and if I feel a lack of motivation I think to myself  'I always feel better after a run than I did before the run' this makes perfect sense and is completely true for me.

  1. Keep up the good work! I thought the exact same thing that you did in week 5. I'm now starting week 9 and it feels amazing to see how far I've come. Don't give up and keep on pushing through.
