Done it

I did my first 5k run just 2 days ago. Can't believe I have actually completed this programme. Now I'll have to do 2 more Week 9 runs - I can't imagine running now without the lovely Laura to give me encouragement. My daughters have both completed Couch 2 5k and I was inspired to have a go when I was told my cholesterol level was too high and my lifestyle was classified by my doctor as 'moderately inactive'. I'm 66 years old. Knees hurt a bit, but I feel great!

  • Well done.. and on running 5K before Graduation..Blimey! You know that you can go slow and steady . just run for the thirty minutes...? Stamina is the important thing.. and watch the knees... I speak from experience :)

  • Impressive! My 5K currently takes around 45 minutes and I am exactly half your age. HUGE respect!!!!
