I did try, but I don’t know what i’m doing wrong!
For week 7, day 1 I only made it 15 minutes running. In fact, I had to stop at 10 minutes because my shins were hurting so much. Then I ran. Then I stopped again. Then I ran.
What’s the problem? Anyone? Shins hurt bad. Real, real bad.
It frustrates me to no end that I can’t seem to get my legs to move. One foot in front of the other takes on a whole new and difficult meaning for me during these treadmill workouts. I can get past the whole gasping for breath, side stitch and inevitable phases of extreme boredom, but I keep hitting that proverbial wall, calves first. There’s no mental game for that.
Maybe the c25k program is just going too fast for me. Maybe I should go back and re-start week 5 because all these problems seem to have started at week 6 for me. Or should I re-start week 6?
I just don’t know what to do!
