It's getting on for 10 years since I last did a 5K race. I was no professional runner believe me! I did 3 races between 2003 and 2005 with times between 31 and 34 minutes. That was with a friend who encouraged me all the way round. I heard about Couch to 5K at my slimming group. I've lost 2 stone over 9 months and I feel ready to exercise again. I've registered for a 5K later this year, I need a goal to motivate me.
Today I did Week 1, Run 1, I feel great! It was difficult and I didn't think I'd make it round without stopping, my face was as red as my top by the end, but I did it!
Now I just need to keep it up!
