    Drum Dave got a reaction from Ms Speech in What comes before Couch?   
    So I thought an update was due. I fought through the demotivation and ran anyway. I took all the advice and repeated Day 1 over and over, allowing myself to walk during most of the day's 8 runs. 
    And when I did walk through a one-minute jog, I chose to see it not as a failure but as part of the process. Each jog was a success, whether or not I could do many of them. 
    My first Day 1: Barely survived 3 of 8 runs. 
    Nearly three weeks later: For the first time I actually jogged for all 8 one-minute runs of the Day 1 session. It was messy. I was out of breath. But I did it. 
    Happy running to all y'all.

    Beginning my journey to recovery (long story) and my cardio is shot. Used to have stamina out the wazoo but now it's long gone. 
     
    So I started Day 1 and couldn't finish. The mind is willing but the flesh is weak; my legs gave out and I couldn't get enough breath to keep going after Run 3 of 8 on today's Day 1. 
     
    I've read suggestions on other threads to just run every 3rd run, or redo Day 1 over and over until I can finish it. I appreciate the intent but that's incredibly demotivating. This app is called "Couch to 5K". Does it really consider the "couch" someone who can run for a full minute, eight times? If that's "couch" is there a setting or a premium offer or another app by the same development team that'll get me from "Barely Alive to Couch"? 
    Thanks all
