Ok I've moved on from week 2. I think I'll be on week 3 for quite awhile. I can do all the runs but the last 3 minutes. Can only get 2 minutes done before I feel like my lungs will explode. Slow and steady I guess.
Thank you for the response. I've been doing week 2 just can't do it all. I guess I'll just keep working at it. And yes I've seen a doctor. I had xrays and am on anti immflamatory medication. If I don't have improvement in a month, they're going to give me a shot. However the pills do seem to be helping.
I've been using c2k5 for about two months now. I can't get past the first week. I can run a minute comfortably but when I move on to week 2 I can only do 5 of the 6 runs. Adding that extra 30 seconds just does me in. My body isn't tired, I just can't breathe. I'm 5'6", 165 lbs. Currently I'm dealing with bursitis so I know that's going to slow me down. Does anyone have any advise on how to get past this hurdle? I do enjoy running but I'm getting frustrated since I can't move on. Thanks!
