Our group has lessened as the weeks have gone on, but I will make sure to see it through to the end.
Today we completed Week 5 Day 2 of the C25k programme – Jog 8 min/Walk 5 min/Jog 8 min with 5 min Warm up and Cool down.
The faster paced group is averaging around 4.2k now, and around 3.6k for the slower paced group.
We have planned to complete Day 2 of Week 5 once more before tackling Day 3 which is a full 20 min Jog.
I think some of the ladies are slightly nervous about the 20 min Jog, but I think if they just lessen their pace, they will be able to get through the full 20 non-stop without too much trouble.
I may join the slower paced group for support for Day 3, to help get them through the tough bits.
After this week we will have just 2 more weeks of the programme left to complete. I expect we will spread it over the remainder of November. I know by the time we finish the full programme the group will be able to jog a full 30 mins/close to 5k.
It is getting closer, and I am super excited for each and everyone of the I Just Want to Run ladies. They will all be completing a full 5k in no time… they may actually like it too!
Spreading the Running bug!
