Couch to 5K

W5R3

O...M...G.... I cannot believe I actually did it!!!! :-) chuffed is not the word. :-) :-) :-) I set off yesterday with more than a little trepidation, but surprisingly found myself able to complete the run and was not gasping for breath (I felt I could have continued!!!) :-) I have to add I am certainly not sprinting, more of a jog at a steady pace (for me who has NEVER run, this is a great leap). Once I complete the program (and I will!) I will look at the actual distance I am covering and aim to ensure that I actually am doing 5K in 30 minutes and progress from there! onwards and upwards.... #buzzing.com :-)

Well done Dee! You don't have to cover 5 k for Graduation purposes so don't worry about that. All you need for Graduation is 30 minutes of running. You can Graduate and then work on building up to 5 k in 30 minutes.

Good luck with the rest of your runs. Enjoy them as this time is not going to come again. Have fun with it and keep smiling

Yes, don't worry about the 5K until after you have finished W9. Slow and steady is the way to go. Well done and good luck !!
