I agree with the other posts. First slow down. Go the speed of a turtle if you have to, but that should help. Cross training on non-running days also helped me with my endurance. : )

I've been known to push through in 10 second increments. Per week. It works, when nothing else does.

I followed the C25K program and the 4 minute runs were killers. Slow down. Heck, I was running slower than I was power walking but I was still running. it's the movement/motion that you need to do, nothing to do with speed.

eventually everything will come together.

A lot of running is just mental. If you think you can do it, you are more likely to be able to get past your block. Make sure you aren't running too fast. Also, I would recommend you do some kind of cross-training on your non-running days if you aren't already. It's amazing how much other kinds of activity help improve your running. You'll get there. Just don't give up.

Hello everyone, I've been following this thread for awhile but this is my first real post in it. For the past month or so I've been training to run a 5k with an interval program, but I seem to have hit a plateau. No matter how I try, I can't run for more than 1:30 straight. Has anyone else had this problem and pushed through? How did you do so?

Thanks!
P.S: I'm loving Sparkpeople.com. I can see there's a lot of love here and that everyone supports one another. I love that in a health/diet site. emoticon
