1. Could be dehydration or I think certain nutrient deficiencies can impact that too. I'd start off with making sure you are well hydrated though, you need to be thinking about hydration the day before the run, thats how important it is. I try to always have a glass or bottle of water on me but that doesn't always mean I drink it 🙃 but you can only try!

  2. Thanks for your response! I hadn’t thought of hydration being an issue - I’m not very conscientious of how much I drink so this could be the problem! I will focus on trying to drink more, especially the day before a run! Thanks again for your comment, I appreciate it!

  3. I’ve recently returned to the shadow Hunter series about 10 years after having read the Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series for the first time. I’m really enjoying reading through them all again and also reading the new series too. I’m finding that I’m enjoying elements that I missed/found boring as a teenager. I also think that Clare’s writing has really developed which makes the later series much richer. Hope this helps!

  4. I’ve just finished week 5 and it was quite the hill to climb lol. I would say just go as slow as you need to and trust in yourself! Good luck ☺️

  5. I think I’d want to be a shadow hunter at the Scholomance (but not the Zara type, the Ty/Diego type!)

  6. I agree with other commenters. Get a foam roller. It hurts like hell while you're doing it, but it absolutely helps.

  7. That’s really useful advice, thank you! I am going to order a foam roller and start using it ASAP!

  8. Well done! I’ve just finished week 3 today and it’s a good feeling! I’ve been taking two runs with a one day break in between and then taking two days before the third - it saves my legs a little 😂 I’ve also been taking time after the run to do Yoga with Adriene’s post-run stretches which has been helping too! Good luck with the coming weeks ☺️

  9. I am wishing you the best of luck! Go at a pace that suits you, I hope you enjoy getting back to running - it sounds like it’s an important part of your life!

  10. I completed C25K about a year ago and would regularly do one more run from a completed week before progressing to the next week without giving myself a hard time and it helped in the long run as the intensity increases.

  11. Thanks for the advice! It’s useful to see how different people have approached the programme. I am more focused on finishing the programme than burning out and quitting because it’s got too hard so I am definitely willing to repeat weeks/runs as needed. Thanks again!

  12. That's a good approach. The great thing is that the programme really works and sets you up to run greater distances when you're done. Because the intensity is graduated you'll definitely be running 5K by the end of it. Also, as it's centred around running for a duration of 30 minutes it should set you up to run 5K at a decent pace by the end of the 9 wks.

  13. I just completed the first run of week 3 (having decided to go for it and not repeat week 2) and it was much better than I thought it would be! You’re right - the programme clearly does work and I just need to lean into it! Thanks again!
