Couch to 5K

I have actually run 5k😀

Went for my first run today with my Garmin forerunner ( thank you all for your advice on that one, it is so easy to use). I was wanting to see if I was anywhere near 5k after the 30 mins. Turns out that after 36 mins I had done 5.7 km (despite wicked sunburn thanks to spending the day at my daughters school for sports day). Sure I could have given the four year olds a run for their money 😂I am relieved to know I am at 5k mark so this is me shouting from the rooftops x

Blimey, that is a great pace! Very well done. Do you find the Forerunner motivates you more to challenge yourself as you can instantly see what distance you've done? Picture please,might work on me!

this was my first run where I could record my distance accurately so that in itself was motivation to move my weary self a bit faster 😏 But I found as well that if I see I've run something point three km I think 'oh I might as well keep going for the next point seven' so yes I found that motivational too

Well done lornia, must feel good to hit that 5k mark. Which forerunner did u buy? I'm looking at the 230

I bought the forerunner 10 because I just wanted to track distance and it had to be easy for me to use. Also, since I am so new to running and still can't quite believe I'm doing it, I didn't want anything too expensive in case I didn't stick with it. This little watch is perfect for me and does everything I'll ever need it to for £70
