I am facing (tomorrow) week 5 run 3. I am a little apprehensive, but also a little excited at the prospect. I could never in my wildest dreams have imagined that I could run for 8 minutes at a time (week 5 run 2). But now I can. Now I can! It feels (rather sillily) like such an achievement. My family can hardly believe it.
When I think back to week 1, when I could barely catch my breath in the walks between runs.... I know I still have a long way to go until graduation, but I have self-belief. And Laura definitely helps me on my way.
For any newbies to couch to 5k who are reading this: you can do it. Remember "it's just a light jog".
