Couch to 5K

3rd run of the week accomplished😊

It's been a long time since my graduation in October that I managed 3runs a week but was pleased to get 3rd one in today as just started back on Monday so taking it gently. Many thanks to von99 keeping me motivated 😊As we both had a break so knowing that she was out today got me motivated! Managed a 20 mins continuous run along with my 5mins warm up & cool down so that helped boost my confidence a bit that I will get back to 5k 😊😊 felt so good after my soak in the bath ! Hoping that's me on track again🏃🏃.so to all those like me who had a break due to illness or just life in general hang on in there... Mojos can return😀😀 happy running to all you return runners & newbies keep posting as it helps us all 😊😊😊

Delighted to read this! Well done! I can see our mojos quietly twinkling now and worried looks on the faces of our gremlins. I'm aiming for another 20 minutes on Tuesday and will let you know how I get on. X

Hi Phyllis, did you manage to get out for a run today? I got home from work feeling tired and not liking the idea of going out in the cold, but hubby was there saying "I thought you were going for a run" and I thought of you and before I had chance to change my mind, I was changed and out the door! It was lovely out there, I saw a beautiful sunset over the sea and although my run was its usual slow plod, I did it! Hoping to go out again on Friday. 🐢😄

Might see if i can get out tomorrow i was so disappointed as want to keep going you know what its like! Did go pilates ladt night though. Well done you for getting out! Il keep you updated😊

Relying on you to keep me going😀I'm away to Edinburgh babysitting so might have to try a run fri morning before I go on the train! X you keep up the good work x

Yay - well done! 3k is no mean feat either, and we are both getting back to regular running so that's all good! Have a lovely time babysitting, I love Edinburgh! I'm hoping to have a little trot out on Friday, if not then Saturday. We can do this! X

Nice to see you back Phyllis, you have been missed. I think the three times a week run is the important thing, helps build those running legs and stamina! You will soon be ready for Parkrun I'm sure 😃🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️

O hope so😊It's all you lovely folk that keeps me going 😊I can't wait for light nights again as so nice running at the weekends in daylight! Happy running😊🏃🏃😊

Well done you. Like first starting the programme, it's hard to get that first run done but once you're running regularly again it's like you never stopped. :) Take it easy and you'll be back at that 5k and beyond!

So true I find it's easier when you get back to running 3times a week! Can't wait to get my 5k again but going to take it slowly as a few wee niggles after a month break! Onwards we go go though😀😀
