Stagnant/Decline at Week 7

Recommended Posts

I just finished week 7. The program has been awesome and I'm proud and amazed by my progress. However, during week 7, I did not continue to improve. I actually did worse over the 3 runs. I'm barely doing 2 miles in the 25 minutes. Now, with one week left and the 5k on Saturday, I'm getting nervous. Any tips on how I can get back on track?

I'm sure others will come back with the same message.  The goal is to raise your endurance and stamina at first.  Worry about speed later.  When I got my hip flexor injury, I was averaging about 7:00/km - meaning if I'd been able to finish the last couple of sessions, I would be doing 5K in 35 minutes (having done 4km in 28 minutes before the injury hit).  The plan was to just get the 5K and then see if I could shave that 7:00/km to 6:00/km to get to the "5K in a half hour" that the app targets.  Then I wanted to start stretching that out to 10K.

As long as you're moving forward, you ARE on track.
