Week 8 complete !!

Finished Week 8 run 3 today and felt strong. Tuesday's run went OK but I was glad to hear Laura's voice after 28 minutes and stopped running ASAP!!! Today though I ran inside on a cool running machine in the Hotel where I was staying ( it had fans on it to cool you down !!) it also had a 5k route on its program so I decided to take the challenge. 31 minutes and 5k later I was done (and could have gone on a little longer to be honest). This Couch to 5k plan is really amazing so for anyone out there who is finding the early weeks tough KEEP GOING, it does get easier if you stick to the Plan !! Good Luck YOU can do it !!

  • WELL DONE Chris! Sounds like you're doing really well, all the best for week 9 :)

  • Thanks aliboo70 . Well done on your graduation !!

  • When? I've just finished W7R3 and I was desperate to hear Laura (admittedly I had lost her but mapmyrun was still on, so I had to look at that). I always seem to finish on an uphill.

  • Fantastic! and a really good time. Not long now and you already know you can do it. Well done and keep running :)

  • That's good Chris well done, nearly there! Look forward to seeing your graduation badge soon. x

  • Thanks guys. Signed up for my local 5k Park Run in the morning so I'll let you know how I get on, first time running with others and there are some HILLS .. Bit nervous !!

  • Well done and good luck with your park run tomorrow. Best wishes.
