So I'm doing the Couch to 5K program, which is awesome. I amaze myself every time I go out to run and keep learning that my body is capable of stuff I never thought would be possible (run for 5 minutes straight??? Unfathomable a few weeks ago but I'm doing it!). However, next week has me terrified. The first two days alternate 5 minute and 8 minute runs. Scary to think of running 8 minutes as I'm still struggling with 5, but I've proven to myself that I can handle increases. But then the third day is a 20 minute straight run!!! How are they expecting people to go from 8 minutes to 20 minutes? Obviously people do it as tons of people have successfully completed the program, but all the other increases have been gradual - 60 seconds to 90 seconds, 90 seconds to 3 minutes, 3 minutes to 5, 5 to 8, etc. But 8 to 20??? That's just crazy talk. I'll try it, but I don't seriously see myself being able to do it the first time. Or the 2nd. Hell, I can't envision myself ever doing it, to be honest. I'm sure that a lot of it is psychological and I just need to man up and do it. Any experiences that could be shared with quickly bumping up running time that will help me feel better about this?
