All the work up to this point was to prepare your body for the continuous run so your body is more than capable. When you get tired or feel like you need to stop, just slow down and focus on your breathing and don’t pay attention to the timer. Oops, I just realized your day 3 was yesterday. How did it go?
I wanted to add an update for anyone else who gets to this point and panics when they see the 20 minute jog on week 5, day 3, like I did. When I got there, I ended up doing a repeat of week 5, days 1 & 2, which I wish I hadn’t done because it turns out, I could’ve done the 20 minute jog non-stop. I just completed week 6 and rather than psych myself out on day 3 (22 minute run), I decided I would run until I couldn’t any long and was surprised when I did the full 22 minutes non-stop without feeling like I was going to die or like I did too much. So, even if you’re sure you can’t do it
I had the same issue. I cut the jog up and did it the same as the previous two workouts (5 minutes of jogging x3). I’m going to move on to week 6 and if I have issues completing the workouts as designed for week 6 then next week I’ll go back to week 5. What did you end up doing?
