I am on the wrong side of 40 and after a decade of little exercise (I had 3 children) I took up running early August. I finished the couch to 5k in 8 weeks and was thrilled and feel so much better. I run on mountainous roads and thought I was really pushing myself. I run 5-6 times a week (5kms), then walk another 5kms after the run. I still find it a struggle to do the 5kms especially at the beginning of the run. I really thought it would be much easier at this stage and although I love it I am disheartened as I was hoping to up the distance by this stage. I would appreciate any advice or similar stories from people in my situation. Many thanks
