YAY! I'm so glad I found this group!
I was starting to see, as I've gotten to week 4 (which is SUPER HARD for me ... do you not know how long 5 minutes of running is skinny people?) that more and more are talking about pace, or are whipping through C25K not taking rest days ...
Pace? The only time I know my pace is when I have to use the dreadmil ... and it is nothing to write home about I tell you. On a good day, I might be able to do my short runs at 6mph (10 minute mile). If I ever do a 10 minute ACTUAL mile, consistently, it will be a big day to celebrate for me.
I was starting to feel discouraged, and I'm so glad to have found a group where my slow pace still counts as running, my short legs aren't something to be despised, they are amazing machines that complain very little about all the weight I make them carry, and I won't get discouraged if I have to slow my pace or repeat a week of C25K. And at the end, we can all call one another runners ... even if we aren't posting chip times or medals.
