Hi , I've hit a bit of a wall. Been running a few weeks now . Am at the running for 6 minutes / walking for 1 1/2 minutes stage . Can do that for 3 miles (5k) . Have got untill 13th may to run the whole 5k without stopping . How do I break the walking out??? I still feel I need it . I can run 2 miles non stop. Any advice would be appreciated
Hi well firstly well done your doing really well. Have you tried to start off a bit slower? Or when you get to your wall instead of walking so to a really slow slow jog then once recovered pick up your speed? Im only at the 3min stage! Still finding it hard but just will not give in! Find running no a tredmill easier to out doors but then cant race on a tredmill ha ha ha.
Let me know how it goes and what you did to over come this might get a few tips myself
