Hi everyone again! Started Couch 2 5K in January 2015. I have just finished the 9 week programme after an injury break early on - but I am now 2 stone down and thgouht what better way than to end it on the local 5k Park Run. The first time I tried a park run I had to walk a bit of it. But this time I did the whole 4 laps - 5k non stop. Feeling good and it can be done no matter what shape you are. I started off this journey at nearly 17 stone. I have a 3 year old girl but luckily my partner looks after her while I go to the gym. My little girl cheered me all the way round and I felt so proud and it made me find the strngth for the up-hills. Never thought that when I was starting week 1 - that I would be running for 37 minutes non stop!
