Report Stuck and frustrated in Motivation and Support Posted September 3, 2016 the first 5 weeks seem to be about endurance, not speed. When you hit week 6, it seems they want you to pick up the pace. I started doing this the first week of June. It's been 12 weeks, and I haven't even finished week 6 yet! But I've done days 1 & 2 in week six and haven't had to repeat! First week since week 1 I haven't had to repeat a day! I've gotten my lazy butt out there 3 days a week. Now a couple of times I had to stop my run after a few minutes because of pain in my foot once and hip once, and one day it just seemed like I was just unable to do much, but those days were few. I've run a slow as I could. When I hear that "1 minute left" message, I try to pick up the pace and today (week 6, day 2) I tried to pick up the pace for most of my jog.
