Managed a whole 20 mins of running (well slow jogging) tonight. First attempt at week 5 run3, I was so worried about it ramping up that much but as Laura says its a mental issue not a physical one. Luckily my head didn't get in the way and even though I got a little tired 8-10 mins in, physically the run wasn't an issue. I just controlled the pace, listened to my music and relaxed. So chuffed right now. I would never have thought I would ever run, let alone complete 20 mins continuous running. Onwards and upwards 😄
W5R3 - I did it, woo hoo!: Managed a whole 2... - Couch to 5K
Congratulations! Completing this run is a big deal, in my opinion. Hopefully you're doing something nice and relaxing now to reward yourself =] Well done once again and welcome to week 6!
Well done, congratulations We all worried about that run before we did it
I hope you had big silly grin on your face when you finished it it is obligatory you know
C25K is an amazing and wonderful thing. I so wish it had been around when I was young. So glad I found it. So many people have discovered that they love running when they thought they would hate it thanks to Laura and C25K
Yeay.. well done, take it slow and steady in week 6, don't let it phase you
Congratulations on becoming a real RUNNER. Laura says
Thanks everyone, feeling good this morning but will bear in mind all the advice about week 6 and not going too fast! Will be walking a fair bit today and using my trigger point roller on my plantar fasciitis that likes to show its face after each run 😒
I have wk5 r3 to do tonight. It's freezing out there but I know it will be worth it.
Go for it MMcD, good luck 🍀
Hi. I did it! and it wasn't that bad. Couldn't have made it this far without my NHS podcast pushing me on. Week 6 starts tomorrow. Didn't even look at it yet. One day at a time seems to work so far. Much happier person now.
Well done, it's a fab feeling isn't it.
