I haven't posted here for a long time, but still enjoy reading a few of yours from time to time, and seeing a few familiar names still here. I started couch to 5k some time in February, deciding that at 51 fitness really needed to be part of my life again. I battled cold, wind and rain but was very determined to complete the course, which I did. After falling and breaking my arm shortly afterwards, I picked myself up and knew that running was for me as I missed it so much. I continue to run 3 times a week, and have actually completed two parkruns, a challenging but rewarding experience.
I still use Laura from time to time, and am now working on increasing speed a little - parkrun puts me at 33 minutes. 'Speed' is still my favorite podcast. My goal is to get below the 5k in 30 minutes at some point, but hey. there's no hurry....
The rewards of running keep on coming. Both physically and mentally I feel so much better, and socially I have made new friends. It really has become a solid, enjoyable and positive part of my life and as always it's thanks to couch to 5k!
Best wishes and good luck to you all..
