Who would believe it?

January 11th 2017: my first run down tracks away from where I was likely to be seen attempting to run! Made it through - somehow!

March 9th 2017: my final run of C25k completed! Woo hoo! And in full view of the whole world (well, not quite)!

I can now run 5k - have done so twice now albeit not in the magical 30 minutes, but in 34.04. The feeling is one of joy. I knew I had perseverance, but I did seriously doubt that I would be able to run anywhere near 5k at the beginning.

My aim now is to break the magical 30 minutes.

Keep going everyone on the journey. It is a magical journey.

Many thanks for all the wonderful replies.

I didn't realise, until finding it, that there was a forum for beyond 5k so will be following that one now.

Thanks for all the great support.
