Yes, this is hard!
First, I think you should stay on the current week until you feel ready to move on. I personally did one week for 3 weeks because I didn't feel ready to move up, but I also allowed myself the freedom to go back to the "easier" week if I moved up and it was too hard, but once I allowed myself the freedom to do that, I didn't need it and I kept moving forward.
Second, I haven't done a marathon, but I have run two full miles, about 23 minutes solid, just on Monday. That was HUGE for me! I started running 9/4 and went at my own pace and here is where I am, its been a long time but I've loved it, even the parts that hurt till I wanted to (and sometimes did) scream! Today I wanted to run 25 minutes and increase my distance, but I wasn't feeling it, I only did 1 mile today.
I allowed myself to go at my own pace and you should do.
Keep up the great work!!
It's really hard to suck in your back fat.
