Thank you Laura. Completed Wk5 R3 on Friday night. Must admit to being nervous before going out the door but I don't know how the plan works - but it certainly does. Ok it wasn't a fast run ( but Laura does say a light jog) but I kept going for the whole 20 minutes without stopping. Really proud of myself - at 52 and never run before in my life until I started Couch to 5 K. Actually did very little exercise at all.So if I can do it - anyone can! Thanks to my daughter who is acting as my running buddy and at nearly 30 years younger than me can certainly go a lot faster - but keeps me in sight and gives me encouragement when she can see I am flagging. Bought myself some proper running trainers and they certainly helped - especially with the knee pain I was getting in the first few weeks. Thanks to everyone on the forum - your posts & questions are always interesting & useful. I hope I can encourage anyone who is struggling in the first few weeks to keep going and power through. The results speak for themselves!
