Thought I'd say hi as I'm new to the forum. Been doing couchto5k since early August and did W6R2 this morning, so going for the 25 minute one in a couple of days. Very plased and surprised with how it's gone so far - I'm managing to keep going for the different times, although I am very slow! Thought I might have to repeat a lot of the runs as I hadn't done any running except for buses and trains since I used to do a bit of (slow!) orienteering before our kids were born <cough> 37 years ago, but so far I've managed them first time - there's plenty of opportunity for that to change, though. The first few runs did make me realise how shallow my breathing tends to be and having Laura's tips has helped a lot with that, which has to be a good thing the rest of the time too.
