Hi ladies...I'm on day 2 today so very new to this. Looking at the plan terrifies me (I'm doing the one from therunningbug.com). I can do one minute running, but I strugge and almost gave up after the fourth minute. Proud of myself that I carried on and completed the 6, but I just can't see how I will ever get any better! The idea that I could even run for even two minutes is just ridiculous!
What are you girls doing as well as the couch to 5k? Anything?
Oh, and I just weighed myself and am 12 stone 11lb/ 179lb/ 81.2kg....I want to reach 9 stone as this was my happy weight before. Ha, wish me luck!
Day 2 done! I was still supposed to do 1 min run and 2 min walk...but was naughty and decided to see what I could do. Managed 3 mins run, 2 mins wak, 2 mins run, then 2 mins walk, 1 min run to take me to the end of the 20 mins. Very proud of myself!
Day 1 of week 2 yesterday, I'm not sure if its because it was cold or i was jogging longer but it was deffo harder than last week. I still can't imagine myself jogging for longer than 2 minutes at a time
I am starting on September 18th (once I have moved home and gotten some new trainers, headphones and jogging pants). And am trying to decide what days to do it on and also whether to do it in the morning or afternoon.
I've just downloaded the nhs podcast and am going to do the final day of week 2 on that. I think a podcast will really help me...can't be watching the clock all the time now the runs are getting longer...those seconds tick past slowly.
