Staggered I've run 5K (without staggering)

Firstly, I haven't finished the programme. But once I got to the end of week 5 and found that I could run for prolonged periods of time, I threw caution to the wind ; sat down and planned out routes (bless you, Runkeeper) and this week I've run 5K - TWICE! Slowly, it's true - but my motivation was to run all the way round the Race for Life course in aid of Cancer Research UK and I'm determined to do it. After my race this weekend I'm back to week 6, so that I can legitimately graduate.

The programme works - two months ago I could barely last 60 seconds - so if I can do it, (48, overweight, post knee surgery) anyone can.

Good for you! By just applying yourself to the task you nailed it. I bet you're chuffed with that. Good luck with the rest of the programme

Thank you - chuffed is about right!

Well done on 2 x 5ks. Week 6 is quite a challenge. I still find intervals harder. Good luck for week 6 x

Thank you - I need to do intervals to improve my pace, so will stick with it!
