I did it!! I am so, so grateful to every single one of you who took the time to support, encourage, advise and motivate me on my last thread. I set off really unsure if I could do it but I did! We went very slowly, but I managed it all and it really wasn't that bad. This programme is amazing, I know everyone says it but, if you follow the steps it really does carry you through! I am a bit proud of myself Here's to the next 2 runs this week!
Week 4 Run 1 - follow up to despondent thread! - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
Fantastic ! Well done Sal ! xxx
Go you! Well done 😀
I believe you did it!! Well done! Can I say, "told ya so!!"? enjoy the other runs this week - quite sure you will!
Haha thank you, you can of course say 'told ya so' so many of you lovely people helped me believe i could do it and it worked. The doom and gloom of last Friday is now a distant -ish memory after today! So pleased I did it, and quite looking forward to the rest of the week now xx
You are right to be proud, and we are proud of you too! Take no notice of what your mind tells you when you're running, it's always wrong...xx
Haha I like that piece of advice and will carry it with me! Thank you for all your support!
You're right! The program is brilliant!!! I'd avoided running for over 50 years and now this year I'll be tackling my first marathon (albeit slowly!). I blame Laura . Keep it up, now and who knows where this running lark will take you. It's certainly changed my life for the better. Just keep ticking off those runs one by one - you will amaze yourself with just what you can do - and if you haven't yet, try out a parkrun, if you have one nearby. It's like a regular C25k fix and can really help you stick with the running once the 9 weeks are done.
You are on your way to the Graduate Table Well done
On the way.. steady and slowly does it.. and you will get there
Be proud! Because, if you don't blow your own trumpet..no-one else will..( except us, of course )
Thank you so much! Being slow and steady was definitely the key yesterday, really, really made all the difference. I am proud, I don't think I ever really thought I could get this far, now I am starting to think I might just go the whole way! xx
You should be proud of yourself! More than a little bit Go you!
I have my W4R1 due today. You are giving me strength and faith! You are my muse
Woohoo! Well done Just keep taking the next ones as they come, slow down if you need to, slow down again and you will get there, no problem.
Well done! Pleased it was better than expected! I did my W4R1 yesterday and found it a bit of a killer tbh (started running too fast as had to go past lots of workmen 😄) but I kept going whereas the old me would have given up, so am still claiming that as a win!!
Woohoo, go Liz, very well done! I would have had to speed up past workmen too x
Thanks! We will get there! 🏃
We will indeed, I have just done run 2 which was not without its traumas, I lost a dog halfway through, cue lots of running and shouting frantically! Then a kind man drove round the corner with her in his car lol
