So I am redoing Couch to 5k and I am stuck right now. I cannot get past running for 3 minutes. I run outside and I'm wondering if I should go to the treadmill or should I just keep on running what I can run? Please give me advice emoticon

    Keep pushing! It most likely is a emotional wall! You can do it!

    Keep at it... try just pushing yourself to run 30 more seconds just to get past the 3 minute wall. I don't know about the treadmill versus outside.... honestly, I HATE running on a treadmill, so I tend to do worse runs on a treadmill than when I am outside.

    DON't GIVE UP.... emoticon

    Push through it! Honestly! When I was in the military and running all the time, I always hit a wall right about the 3/4 mile mark. I felt like I just couldn't go further. My legs were tired, I felt out of breath and I just wanted to fall out and lay on the side of the track, road or where ever I was. But of course I couldn't. I pushed. When I made myself keep putting one foot in front of the other and listened to the little red engine in my head, all of a a sudden I would just break through and get a second wind (so to speak). I think of that wall as a little trick the lazy out of shape me plays to keep me lazy and out of shape. So I say, push, push a little further, push a little harder and soon you'll find yourself on the other side of I can't and in the great big wide realm of I can.

    Treadmills can help. Also very when and where you run if you can. You will find your rhythm and.blow past this little bump.

    You so can do it! Just go a little at a time!

    Don't give up! Try the treadmill for a change of pace. How about walking fast then moving into a jog? Another Spark friend of mine does walk/jog and kills it!

    You can do it! emoticon
