Run 3 Week 5 OMG!

I am feeling fantastic. I cannot believe that I have just run, non-stop, for 20 minutes! The C25K and Laura are miracle workers. I feel I owe this achievement to this program and this fantastic community support here .Only a few weeks ago I was fighting for breath after my one minute jog and today I actually enjoyed the run - and I am thinking about the next one - what has happened to me? Perhaps time to shed my potato skin!

  • Well done runlikethewind1, that is a smashing result. Its amazing how quickly this program turns a couch potato into a runner. Keep up the good work, no turning back now. :)

  • There are so many of us that know exactly what you mean. It's a fantastic feeling. Well done & good luck.

  • Happy for you. I know how you feel just finished wk8 run 1 & can't believe this is me, couldn't stop smiling. Looking forward to graduate, it will be a life achievement.

  • Lovely smile runlikethewind1, so pleased that the programme has converted yet another couch potato into a runner bean! Keep up the good work, continue to blog to let us know how you get on, and keep enjoying it all. Lots of luck in the weeks ahead. Linda X :D

  • Well done, it's a great feeling isn't it?

    Good luck with the rest of the plan.

  • Well done, enjoy the achievement - the community and programme may have helped you, but it was you who unlocked your own potential. :-)

  • well done rltw1, I do my w5r3 tomorrow and it really is motivating having people state how good they feel after they have just completed the next point in the programme. see you in week 6
