Couch to 5K

W7R2 In the bag!

Well after much deliberation over whether I was going to be brave and run outside or wimp out and just go to the gym and run on the treadmill yet again I took a big breath and headed for the great outdoors! 5 times around the access round at our local athletics track meant I had covered 4.2KM in 25mins!! Success! That is my third 25 minute run in 6 days and I am still absolutely astounded that it is ME that has done it. I have wanted to run for so long and always told myself that I'm a walker not a runner, I am constantly amazed at just how fantastic this programme is. To anyone who is even thinking about starting it DO IT and DO IT NOW!! You will never look back. 7 Runs to Graduation day .......... get the champagne on ice :-))
