Couch to 5K

WK5 R1

Just wanted to say I am finding this C25K amazing.

Up until 5 weeks ago I had never run or had any inclination to, now I am going out in an hour to start my week 5 runs. Like a lot of people I am finding it hard to think that my 3rd run this week will be 20 mins non stop! I forgot to say I am 56 and smoked up until January this year.

I am also going to Spain on Tuesday so the 20 min run will be out there! Think I will get up early on Wednesday before it warms up too much.

Stick with it and it keeps on delivering.

Keep running, keep smiling.


Good luck, how lovely to be able to go to Spain to do the dreaded W5r3! I'm taking that challenge on tomorrow, after a drive to Leeds and back to watch one of my boys run the Leeds Half - how anyone runs 13 miles, I will never know.

Post an update on how it goes :)


Good luck saraV. X

I'll be away soon too. I used google maps to set up a 5k run and a slightly longer run too, and there's a gym so no excuses even if the sun is too hot.

Good luck on w5r3. You'll feel fantastic when you've done it. Just take it slow and you'll smash it.


Thank you, love the advice from you all.
