    MrsWepking got a reaction from Lana9 in Week 5 Day 3 conquered!   
    I did it!  C25K week 5 day 3 is in the books!  I ran for 20 minutes straight, which is 12 minutes more than I’ve ever done before.  I didn’t hit the 2 mile mark because I only run at 5 mph, but running for 20 minutes without stopping is a huge accomplishment for me.  I am by no means a runner, and just a few weeks ago 3 minutes at a time was rough.  I will say I much prefer the intervals to the long runs, but it is very satisfying to know that I am capable.

    The day after when it went back to intervals I was happy and couldn’t understand how people said the long runs were better, but now that I am on week 8 I agree!  Long runs are satisfying.  I also crave running—on my off days I get cranky that I can’t run, lol.  Good luck on Monday!

    I just did Week 6 Day 3 today and it was great.  I ran for 27 minutes straight to get the 2.25 miles and I wasn’t completely dying by the end!  I always walk afterwards  until I hit 3.17 miles and I did it in 45 minutes 25 seconds.  45 minutes is my goal for my first 5K in November, so I’m hopeful.  After I finish the program I am planning on starting over outside because I have been doing it only on the treadmill (at a 2 incline) so far.  Good luck with your long run!

    That's awesome. I remember that being my dreaded day lat time I first did the programme. Seemed scary. After two years off not running I'm starting again on Monday

    Congrats! I’m coming up on this, one more run to go then it’s go time. I have been mentally preparing for the last week ever since I saw they threw this 2 miles nonstop at me so soon. That’s a huge deal to achieve when you consider we’ve been easing up to it the last 4 weeks. I’ve been pumped I could sustain 5 mins the last couple days. We’ll get there!

    MrsWepking reacted to Klawilliam in Week 5 day 3 rain   
    I got to the dreaded first 20 minute run. It was raining, but I told my family I was not missing a day except under the most dire circumstances so I headed out.  Best run yet!  I think because I spent more time thinking about the rain everything else took care of itself.  Feel like I can tackle anything!
