Couch to 5K

Week 8 done!

I can't believe I am writing this! My next run will be the first run of week 9! So excited and can't wait to get going. Not too worried about next week, I trust laura! More worried now about keeping up my motivation after week 9 - just going to keep my head down for now and enjoy the next three runs. Thank you to everyone who posts here for helping me get this far.

Congrats! Well done for getting this far, and enjoy the next few runs! You'll feel so good at the end of it - what an acheivement :)

Have a look at the "life afer your 5k" post on the right - that might give you something to focus on immediately after - I've mostly enjoyed them!



I did my first week 9 run yesterday and it went well. I hadn't enjoyed week 8 and while I thought, 'how am I going to manage 30 mins when 28 is not enjoyable' it was actually better... Went a different route and the time passed quicker.

I'm also thinking about 'what next' as I think I stuck with this as there was a specific end in sight. If things get a bit 'vague' I might have less impetus to get out there. Although I have to admit I don't think I'd like to be seen to give up and I like feeling fitter so we will need to find what suits us best once we complete that final run!

Good luck with rest of week 9!


Well done on completing week 8. Enjoy your graduation week. Best wishes.
