I'd got up to week 6 run 3 and then went on holiday. I worked out a reasonable looking circular route for a run on holiday and discovered, by chance that it was 5.03K long so I thought, as an experiment, I'd just see if I could run it. It had some steep uphill bits that I just couldn't manage to run, but I ended up with three 1.5 minute walks near the beginning and ran the rest. Did it three times over 10 days, each time in just over 45 minutes. Back home from holiday and so I just tried 5K on the treadmill. Ran the whole 5K in 36:46. I think I will treat this as having graduated from C25K - absolutely amazing programme. I can't beleive that I can do this (55 at the end of the month, overweight and stressed out, but much less stressed when running).
