Back after almost a year on the couch!!!

Just ran 5k last night after almost a year of starting the Couch to 5k. I really Loved it last Spring, managed the 5k runs, lost 2 stone, got injured ( Plantar Fasciitis) = put 2 stone back on , and a year later just getting back into it. Hope to stay injury free and keep my motivation up. Hers to 10k!!!!. Any programs out there for 5k to 10k ??

Well done for getting back to it. I had a 'lazy' winter and have stared back in the middle of the programme. I plan to give this a try next.

Well done. I have been in the same boat (although I had been out for approx 4 months) and am slowly but surely getting back into the groove. Spring is a fantastic time of year for running, although the last few days have been awful weather wise.

Have you had a look at the bupa plan? There is an intermediate plan which takes you from 5k to 10k in 9 weeks. Unfortunately you don't have a coach like Laura but have to rely on your own music and motivation.

Good luck with whatever you choose.
