Officially finished Couch to 5k today! It feels exhilarating! I never thought I'd make it this far, with plenty of obstacles in my way, but here we are.
Wanted to do something special for this weeks last run, so I pushed myself further than the usual 30 minutes. I wanted to run 5k today, so I soldiered on after Laura said slow down. Pulled it off in just over 35 minutes and it felt unbelievable.
C25k is an incredibly well-structured program, and while things may seem tough, especially in the middle (I still remember that 8 minute to 20 minute jump somewhere near week 4-5) keep going, and my advice to beginners is, you definitely CAN do it. Laura's little tidbits (you can do it, I know you can!) help a lot too. I discovered this forum well into my journey, but you guys were a massive help too.
Next up, I've got a 5k race at the end of February, so I'm going to consolidate my 30 minutes, build it up to 5k, and hopefully improve my speed.
