I know what you mean with the walking and running!Week 6 Run 2 completed yesterday. I have started this a few times and never got close to this stage but this time I know I will finish it. I am away until very early on Friday morning so there will be no more runs until the weekend, but that is ok. I will pick it up again from there.
The long walks will really help you @Sammie88 if you decide to go for it again. I think that is what made the difference for me this time. I was regularly doing 6 or 7km brisk walks. And my "running" isn't much faster than my walking
well done for getting to week 6 - I seem to be struggling to get to week 1 run 1 and I really do want to start it. The longer runs feel daunting, but when I did this programme a couple of years ago, once I got past the first minute or two, I got into my stride and managed them fine. I think I had to learn to trust the programme. Let me know if you finish it, and what your plans are then . . . do you think you'll progress to parkruns? (I want to, but they are a bit scary when I do the programme in the gym on the treadmill!!)Hi @Failedatdietsfor15years!
Have you done your first run yet? Let us know how you go?
I have finished week 6. I had to repeat the last run as I couldn't finish it the first time. I think I will have to repeat quite a bit form here on but I am happy to do that if it means I will eventually finish it.
