"Because in the end, you won't remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain."
"Don't feel like running today...suck it up and run ...you're an athlete." (John Stanton, founder & owner of The Running Room)
"The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race."
W5D2 is harder than W5D3, and W6 is harder than W5. You'll be just fine, and save some energy for W6!
I'm slower than a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter, but I run.
OMG, I feel like I'm going to be on week6 forever! Still having a hard time doing that 25 minute run. I've been doing this for 3 months between my own training and c25K. What the heck???
I finished week 5 this morning with my 20-minute run! Since I'm on a treadmill, I stayed at the same pace the whole 20 minutes, which was my goal, to not lower my speed but not go faster than I'm comfortable with. The realization hit me about a half hour later, when I broke down (from joy) listening to the song "Kyrie" of all things.
The key for me has been to keep it slow and steady for now, until I'm able to handle long times at a faster pace, trying not to burn out too soon. Have a great weekend everyone!
