Couch to 5k completed tonight!

I never imagined that having struggled to run for 60 seconds 9 weeks ago that I was able to complete tonight running for 30 mins doing 3.5 miles. I am aged 55 and sit at my computer a lot at work so was relatively unfit, now I am much fitter and sometimes even enjoy my run. Brilliant set of pod casts, now considering doing a 10K in May, thank you.

Well done! Congrats on graduating

There are three more Laura podcasts which follow on from Couch. They are called Stepping Stones, STamina and Speed and they can be downloaded from this site, as can the Sami Murphy Bridge to 10 k programme

I have just started couch25k week 1 but your post has given me hope!

Well done! I know that feeling. I'm a similar age a sit at a computer or in the car a lot, and I'm amazed at what I've achieved. I'm on week 8, so just a bit behind you, but I'm so close to 30mins and 5k. Might not get both next week, but I'm not far away.
