Couch to 5K

I did it .... Wk2 R1 done!

I rock and feeling absolutely amazing. Silly I know but I didn't think in a million years I would be able to do and I did it, without to much trouble. The only problem I had was that I was holding my stupid iPhone too tight and I kept hitting the pause button. V irritating. Oh, and the tightening calf muscles. What's that all about? Does anyone know of some exercises I can do to stretch my calf muscles before I start running? Other than that no side effects, aches or pains after the event.

Well done you! I had the same problem with my iphone so I started using the podcast on my ipod shuffle - much better. I've posted a link below with some useful stretches.

If I can do it anyone can. I'm in it to loose weight (I need to loose 5 stone to reach a normal bmi). If I can do it carrying that lot so can you. Everyone here has been supportive and friendly. It feels like everyone is routing for you.
