rising temps will slow you down. they recommend going slower for ever 5 degrees over 65 it is.
Thank you Mariean! I got up and repeated the W1D3 this morning and was successful. Lots of negative talk going on, but I pushed them away and was successful! :)
I really appreciate your support!
I also did the C25K - and was able to sucessfully complete it without a "bad" run. I am now working through the Spark your way to a 10K program and did okay until week 8 (all interval training, which seems like it should be easier than the 5K since I don't run longer than 4 minutes at a time. But, I have had several "bad" runs. I don't really know why, but some of my thoughts are
what I ate the night before
not being fully hydrated
gaining a couple pounds
But, even though I only had one good run in the week and it is taking me forever to finish week 8 - I know that I can do it - so I just accept the good runs along with the "bad" ones. However, they are truely all good runs - way better than sitting on the couch. Even little is better than none.
Don't talk yourself out of it - you will regret it I fear.
In CHRIST I can!

This past Sunday I was to run the W1D3. I had successfully completed the first two days (albeit slowly).
The main difference from my "normal" run time was that it was close to 9:30am. The sun was out and it wasn't too hot. I normally run around 5:30-6:00 am and the sun is just starting to rise at the end of my run.
It wasn't hot, but I was HOT! I am hoping this is why I did not do well. I ran the first two intervals (ugly!) and then just could not run any more. I had never experienced this before and completed all of C25K without any bad runs. I didn't get it. I tried to run, would get a few paces and then could not move any further. I ended up walking home the rest of the 2 miles almost in tears. I was nauseous and defeated.
The worst part, I haven't run since. I woke up early this morning and completely psyched myself out of running. I know I need to "get back on the horse" so to speak, but I am afraid I have hit some sort of limit. Maybe this is all I can do? Ah, I know this isn't good self-talk and wonder if anyone has ever gone through this.
Any support or advice is welcome. :)
