  1. Week 11 now... I think I take the "easier" back. Granted the margins of change seem smaller now but the amount of time it takes to complete really impacts on my motivation. I ran one morning last week instead of my usual evening and it was so hard but also I think I was in totally the wrong frame of mind. All learning curves I guess. Still pushing on! Hope everyone is doing great
  2. I'm just into week 11 and I've just completed day 1 with no problems (well other than praying for it to end and the usual thoughts that go with a new week) however admittedly I did day 1 and 2 of week 10 fine but on day 3 went running in a morning having only had a banana and not feeling very motivated and failed miserably. Because I knew I could do it as I already had earlier in the week I decided to move on but this showed me that times and conditions of my runs are so important, could you perhaps try a different time of day or fuel up a bit more before you go?
  3. I'm now week 9 day 3 and still surprising myself every time. Now at a distance of around 7.5km in around 45mins including warm up. and seeing my pace improve all the time. Once you've pushed past the barriers to get to the 5k everything seems a bit easier... For now anyway, I'm sure that will change in the coming weeks.keep going everyone
  4. I was absolutely dreading today's run, the dreaded 20 min jump. But I actually found it OK. Not exactly pleasant but after I passed the half way mark I felt pretty good. I've been on the programme a couple of weeks as I started a few weeks in due to already doing a bit of running here and there. I do my runs 3 times a week and also go to the gym and do a few classes on days I don't run. I just honestly feel mega pleased that today worked out like it did after I really worried about it. I felt like I could have kept going but I feel like that's where sometimes I go wrong. Pushing myself too hard, so I want to stick to the programme to build up sensibly. Anyway I just wanted to stir a little bit of positivity into the dreaded week 5 day 3 as I think I felt a bit scared just from reading some Stuff on here. Mind over matter. Focus on the music and try to be mindful of the world around you. That's what helps me. Looking forward to my next challenge
