week 9 run 3 .....5k !

Well I finally did it, on run 1 and 2 of this week I got within a stones throw of the 5k. today I was determined and I did it. To anyone thinking of trying this plan or working through it then I had never run before, struggled at week 3 with knee pain , but I stuck with it and its the best thing I have done for the good of my health. really chuffed and looking forward to some organised runs in the summer. thanks c25k

  • Well done you! That's fabulous. I'm just starting week 6 tomorrow and would never have dreamt I could get this far so reading posts like yours are so inspiring.

  • Wow well done. It's a great feeling and if you're like me you will still find it difficult to believe that you've gone from huffing and puffing for 60 second intervals in week 1 to running for 30 minutes. To get 5k in your final run is awesome keep it up and remember to get your graduation badge.

  • Fantastic ! Well done for making it to the 5k as well, a double bonus...
