First post having now completed the 9 week course. I just want to say to anyone reading this who has just started or has yet to start, go for it! I would never have thought, just over 10 weeks ago, that it was possible for a man in his 40's who was never a sporty type to run for 5k never mind 5 minutes. Just work your way through the podcasts. You are in very good hands with Laura! I also found the posts on this site to be most helpful. Just booked my first 5k fun run and that's just the start. Good luck all.
