    Week 5, Day 3 - WTF!!!

    Good for you, PaulaClara. (thumbs_up) I'm planning to leave my four-week loop on April twenty-second. Up until now that third day of week 5, while not exactly terrifying, was definitely scary. At this point though, since my breakthrough this week, it isn't as scary, though I'm not so sure I would be able to run for a full 20 minutes. But my mindset is such that I'll give it my best shot and maybe I can do it.

    You are very inspiring. I think you can do this. I have been on week 4 for 4 weeks at least, so I am impressed with anyone who can do week 5. And I want you to know that, from my experience and experiences of the people posting here, it is absolutely no shame to repeat weeks over and over and over and over again. I think one's own personal health and stamina are a lot more important than a running program created by some random person who wanted to help couch potatoes run.

    Training for April 5k

    This week, I ran Monday, Tuesday, and today. I ran Tuesday instead of Wednesday, because Wednesday was supposed to be really windy. And it was. Since I also run on Saturdays, I'm going to start week 4 again tomorrow. Next week, I will only be running on Monday and Wednesday, because I'm going out of town that weekend. My plan is, on April 22nd, to start week 5. That actually kind of makes me laugh, because the 5K is on the 27th and there's no way in h#ll that I would have been able to finish the c25k program in the amount of weeks it says we have. I mean I'm not even halfway through it and I have been running a lot longer than the weeks it gives us to train. CleBkPkr, I'm glad I'm not alone in the fact that I run a lot better after 20 or 30 minutes. I really think that a half kilometer or 10 minute warm up is the thing to do to run longer each time we run. My pride wants me to run as soon as the lady on the app says to run, so what I did today, was not press start on the c25k app until I had walked for about one minute. I will probably wait longer next time.

    Training for April 5k

    Okay, right after I read your messages, I decided to reinstall Cronometer to my phone, and log the coffee and creamer I had today. It's always a pain in the butt to me to record everything I eat, but I think you have a good point that I should be paying attention to how much protein I'm eating. It's possible I haven't been having enough.

    Week 5, Day 3 - WTF!!!

    I just finished week 5 Day 2 and seeing what’s coming up is freaking me out. I’ll do what I can and start over if I have to.

    I just completed Week 5, Day 2, so now I am also trying to prepare myself for the dreaded Day 3...DUN DUN DUN!!! It’s been really encouraging to see everyones’ tips, strategies, and experiences though.

    Week 5, Day 3 - WTF!!!

    I wondered if this was an error and it’s never gotten corrected so now we think it’s supposed to be like that?(g) I ran into issues after W5 D1 and had to drop back to week 2 and start back. Today I am back to Week 5 day 1. I’ll be doing the 20 min run this weekend. I’ll get thru it but it may take a couple of tries!
