So four weeks after graduating I've hit my ultimate goal - to run 5K in under 30 minutes. It feels pretty good. I see lots of people in this forum asking "Why is it called Couch to 5K, if at the end of week 9 I can't run 5K", but they're missing the point. If you are able to run non-stop for 30 minutes, you have the potential in you to run 5K, and that's what matters. Don't get hung up on speed or distance, just keep putting the work in and eventually you'll achieve your goals. Right I'm off for a beer. Happy running!
