After failing miserably two years ago to even get past week one, I'm now about to start week three of couch to 5K. I really don't think after managing the last two weeks relatively easily that this programme is encouraging the people it is supposed to be aimed at. Two years ago I had spent three years with virtually no substantial exercise due to having an old dog that suffered separation anxiety. When I tried to run, 30seconds was out of my reach let alone 1minute which is the level for week one, I'm a pretty determined individual, but even I felt deflated by not reaching the lower level set by this programme aimed at people supposedly just like me. I did try to carry on, setting my own criteria for a month programme just to get to the 1minute run, however I broke a small bone in my foot and had to stop. I've spent the last two years getting fit in other ways with no set programme, but I feel there should be other programmes that need to be created for those people that truly need to get fit. I know people who get out of breath just walking a few hundred yards. They'd look at couch to 5K and not even bother. Have any of you failed couch to 5K?
