I started my couch to 5k journey on Monday! It wasn't a rash decision I have been putting it off for weeks. 9 to be precise! The realisation that I could have finished by now is what has motivated me to get going.
I decided to document my journey to hopefully keep me a bit more motivated! I tried to start last year and managed one run and then decided I would start in summer and never did!
But now I have completed a week! All my runs went well this week! I didn't struggle at all and was pleasantly surprised by my fitness levels. Clearly my power walk (manic running when late) to the train station is helping with this week, it's only a 0.5k distance so I must be use to short bursts of activity. Writing this here is making me realise I also need to work on my time keeping skills as well as my fitness. I mean running down the street loaded with bags can't be a good look, also thinking of my poor fellow commuters who have to stand next to my sweaty self! Apologies to you!
I am slightly worried when the runs start to get longer next week but I am so ready for this!
