Couch to 5K

Just completed my week 9 of couch to 5k

Although I have done most of it on a treadmill, I am pleased to say I have completed my couch to 5k week 9 runs :) Running for 30 minutes at times has felt like a struggle but I just kept going and I feel elated that I have completed the course. When I first started back in March I could only run for 3 minutes before feeling tired so I am very happy to say that I have continued with the course and I would recommend it to anybody that would like to start running/jogging but doesn't know how to. The course builds up your stamina slowly and it really does work :) I have become a happier and healthier person too :)

Congratulations on completing it - it must be an amazing feeling! It's great the way C25K builds up your stamina. Don't worry about the only a treadmill thing, 30 minutes is 30 minutes whether inside or outside. Actually I find inside a bit harder as there's less to distract you. Maybe you could try outside now that there's no pressure to push on. Hope you give yourself a well deserved pat on the back either way.

Congratulations again!

Well done, the graduate badge will look good against your name :-)

If I can give one piece of advice set yourself a new goal to aim for. I found I lost direction for a while after graduating. My new goal is a little extreme in that I have signed up for a half marathon but it could be running 30 minutes outside or taking part in a park run or something else.

What ever you choose, keep running!

Hi guys, Thanks for all the hearty messages :) I think my next goal is to work on my speed and then do a parkrun, my neighbour invited me to go with her sometime and I would like to, and now that I feel more confident will start to run outdoors more too and save the treadmill for rainy days :) x
