Thanks to your encouragement, wise words and e-hugs, I have finally, after a month off with an injury, completed the Couch to 5k. I only did 4.2k over the 30 minutes, but I have completed the course. It's taken me 4 months instead of 9 weeks, I've been through so much this year and this course and your support has kept me sane (relatively...). I will gradually add 2 minutes a week until I can get up to that magic 5k, I imagine it will take me about 40 minutes in total.
You're all so wonderful I want to take you ALL out for a drink
