My new training plan! I had reached a plateau with the c25k training. I was stuck on Week 5 Day 3, which has you warmup for 5 minutes, and then run for 20 mins, with a 5 min cool down walk.
Well, try as I might, I havent been able to do it! I think the most I was able to run was 14 mins. I was determined, but after 5 repeats of lessening degrees of success, I was discouraged.
I had to do something. I found another training plan which will ease me into 20 mins. I forgot who designed it, but I will ya’ll in later.
Lets be clear, I love the c25k for its ease to beginners, but at this point I needed a little more flexibility. By no means do I consider this plan 1 for absolute beginners. As a matter of fact where Ive started at, is more or less week 5 in c25k. This is actually week 3 of this program. By week 3 of c25k I was struggling trying to run 3 minutes. No way could I have started with this program.
Will this program be my answer to all means? I dont know! I do know its a PLAN and plans can always be modified. I’ll keep you guys posted!
