Hi = 9 weeks ago I could not run to catch a bus... I have just turned 49, never run in my life and I saw an email at work back in March that mentioned something called couch to 5k. I had never heard of it. I don't know why, after all these years, I decided it was time to learn to run but two days later I took my first steps, and nearly died running for 60 seconds at a time, and thought I could never do this. I am overweight and part way through the course, I wore "flat" shoes - flatter than flat - for a couple of days to work that made my left ankle hurt. Binned the shoes, and continued to run and overcame the pain in the ankle. I have rather amazed myself by finishing my 9 week programme today. Wednesday I even got up at 5am to get run two of the week in before I went to work! I am insane hahah... Anyway - here I am, finished, and rather pleased with myself. I have not run a total of 5k yet, being slow, but I have done the 30 mins as Laura promised.............feeling a bit pleased with myself
