I started C25K with a goal of running the whole 5km of a Race For Life. Although I exercised regularly I had never run since school, and am now in my fifties. I'd managed to beat the 5km run a while back, so was confident I could do it on the actual day, and I did. The programme was invaluable in making it achievable, both mentally and physically.
I'm going to carry on running and have new targets of running a 10k, and having a sub 30min 5k time. The latter will be a lot harder, I think, but I am very determined to achieve it even if it takes me a year or so!
Thanks for the encouragement and support.
