Was doing well and suddenly struggling :(


Recommended Posts

I had completely the c25k and moved onto the 10k app. I did the first day of week 9 and it was hard but I was able to finished it. Now twice I attempted to finish day 2 and I can't get past 20 min of running. I don't understand why I'm suddenly struggling so much. I'm feeling very discouraged as I have worked very hard to run. Any advice?

Well kellyb I only started from week nine because it's the next step directly after finishing week 8 of c25k. I was running outdoors then running on a treadmill (which is much easier). Then have been away from home & tried running out doors.. Struggled through the first ten min.. Walked for a minute then was suppose to go another 10 min but couldn't finish it without stopping a couple times.. Then 20 min total was all I could handle... I had been running 30+ min outdoors not 2 weeks ago.. & running 40 min on the treadmill.. Just seems bizarre.

Wow, what teacher says too, add another day? Running on a treadmill is way easier too. The belt helps you along. Sometimes our bodies need a break. I have to deal with altitude too.. I am at 5000 feet and it way harder, and when I am on a trip and it is sea level, i can run like forever, lol. How are you feeling now?
