Couch to 5K

Woo hoo!! Wahay! Yahoo!!! ⭐️👏🏃😊😘

i have just finished w5r3!!! I have had such a change in attitude! After being told yesterday that maybe running wasn't for me, the 'me' of a few weeks ago would have given up and hit the wine, chocolate and sofa!!! I did have wine ( just a glass) and a takeaway ( just a starter) and picked up a big bar of chocolate in the shop ( but put it back!). The overwhelming support from this forum and my stubbornness ( my mother always said I had a stubborn streak - I never believed her😉) made me more determined- I've got up, got out and bloody well done it!!!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to comment yesterday - your advice and positivity made me do this - I will be wearing a smile as bright as my gold stars all day 😊

Massive love, hugs and respect to you all 😍😘😍😘😍😘😍😔

A bit of fire in the belly is never a bad thing! Maybe my nurse wasn't a saboteur at all, but actually my saviour! She knew which buttons to press, employed a bit of reverse psychology - I am playing the 'glad game.' 😊

I am looking forward to w6, but due to a weekend away with lovely friends, it will be starting on Monday . Have a great weekend 😊

That's brilliant and all the effort to get to that run makes that one really special. Stubbornness is a good thing, without it you don't realise how strong you are.

All the best with week 6 and beyond.

I would love the world to be pink, fluffy and sparkly, but sometimes it isn't! However, whilst a bit deflated initially, I've embraced the negativity and have managed to overcome it ( for now at least!!!) W6 starts on Monday 😊

I am pleased as punch - I am so often tempted to take the easy route, so toughening up and just getting on with it has been a huge step forward for me! Thank you for your support x

I am generally a positive person, but also a little insecure, so if I'm told I can't or shouldn't, I'll usually conform. Something in my head has just shifted a little bit and I really quite like it 😊
