Couch to 5K

I did it!

Well, 10 weeks after going our for my first "run" and thinking my heart really was going to burst out of my chest, I did it!

Completed the C25k and after a rest day I ran for 42 mins to get to 5k. Now need to keep doing the 5k until I don't look like I am going to collapse.

Aiming for a park run in March but don't want anyone calling me an ambulance cos of how knackered I look.

Thank you to everyone for your support, its been invaluable.

Newbies, if I can do this, anyone can. BELIEVE!

Well, done congratulations. This is just what I needed to read as a beginner wondering if I will ever be able to run 5km.

Hey, well done and many congratulations! And running 5k so soon after - wow! Don't forget to get your badge; it will look amazing. But of course the most important things (well in my book anyway) are the cake and fizz - go get 'em, really well deserved! :-)

Well done on graduating and hitting 5k as well - impressive! Keep going but be wary of pushing yourself too hard (he says from bitter experience) ...

Well done on two important milestones. I still look like the ambulance needs to be called most days. If you smile at the end of the Parkrun they won't be reaching for their phones.
