This is my second attempt at Couch to 5K (first attempt was May 2012 and I only reached week 4) and I've finally managed to run for 30 minutes. I started my second attempt during October 2013 and this is the first post I've written although I have regularly visited the site to read everyone elses posts and questions and to keep me motivated. I had a few weeks without running due to illness and Christmas so it has taken me longer than the planned 9 weeks, but I got there in the end.
My plan now is to continue running 2/3 times a week (I can't always fit in 3 runs a week) and to gradually increase my speed by 0.1 mph per week (I do all my runs on the treadmill at home) until I can run 5k in 30 minutes and then I will take it from there.
It has been great knowing there is the support from the community if I need it even though I have just been browsing and not posting and I probably wouldn't have completed the programme without it, so thanks everyone it really is a great community
