Congratulations. What a great feat and I completely understand your happiness. Starting the C25k, even 5k seems like a huge goal, and then to move on to run 10k is icing on the cake. Well done you.

That's fantastic, well done. 10k really is a key distance. Not only can you run, but Im guessing you did it it about an hour or so, meaning you can also run for a long time too. That alone is very important. Theres more to come I bet!

Fantastic John, well done!! :)

I've just started, well I'm on week 4 starting tomorrow and I've signed up for a 10k for charity in May 2015. Considering I'm happy that I can run for 3 minutes at a time just now (oh dear), it seems a long way off, but you're proof that it can be done, so fingers crossed!!! It is a great podcast and programme and also rather daunting but I'm going to stick with it. Hope you are enjoying just as much now that you've graduated....
