Hello, everyone! A couple years ago, I started doing Couch to 5k in the hopes of eventually participating in a 5k some day. Well, unfortunately, that's never happened. I just can't seem to reach 5k. Obviously I saw some initial improvements--I couldn't jog for even five minutes when I first started, for instance--but I feel like I've reached a peak I'll never get over. The most I've reached in 30 minutes is just over 3k. And the issue isn't that I'm not able to do it in that amount of time; the problem is I completely tap out by that point. I've tried going just a little longer each time to build up to it, but the truth of it is, I'm already starting to feel fatigued after 15 minutes. Getting to 30 is already pushing myself.
I don't run, either. This is definitely a sedate jogging pace. How can I raise my stamina? Are some people just not meant to do certain activities? Should I just be content with what I've accomplished? I don't seem to have a problem with other types of physical activity.
