  1. Hi Rebecca, I am Jennifer and I started this thread. I was having a ton of trouble getting through my 3 and 5 minute intervals. Just keep trying even if you need to do them an extra week. You will make progress. Soon you will be looking back and thinking about how you needed a little push here today and be smiling because you kept with it. I am far from a runner but 6 weeks ago I wasn't even able to imagine a 5K. I am building my endurance every time I run... Might not be fast yet, but I can always build my speed once I can go the distance. Keep up the great work! You can do it.
  2. Hello, New to doing this and not in good shape but trying to get there. Started out very comfortable, tough but could complete and felt good about it afterwards. Now I have just finished week 3 and feel as if moving on to week 4 will only discourage me. I know that the 3 and 5 minute intervals will burn my lungs and my muscles terribly and make me very frustrated. In the past with frustration comes the "giving up" mindset. Any suggestions? Do many people redo weeks over? Any suggestions? I do not want to give up and repeat my sad cycle of bad habits. In my younger years I was the motivator for many people and now, uugh I can't even motivate myself. It is terribly embarrassing.
