Week 5 c25K ahead

Hi all, I just finished C25K Week 4 yesterday. I feel okay, though the right side of my right heel feel a bit sore. I've walked it off and it's fine now. Usually I feel it when I make turns.

I just want to ask what to look for in Week 5. Clearly this week's workout looks like a grade, with each workday's workout heavier than the previous day. Day 3 sounds pretty exciting---20 min jogging with no walking.

Any ideas on how you felt marching into Week 5 from Week 4? Thanks.

Completing the 20 mins feels amazing - I did mine today. It does seem like a big ask on paper but you have put in the work and will be more than ready. Shall await your achievement post! Good luck

Just take it, one slow step at a time and you will be fine... :)


Week 5 Run 3 is a big milestone. Just take it slow and steady and keep going. You'll feel incredible afterwards.


Week 5 day 3 is the most emotional run on the prepared for the biggest sense of pride when you complete it....I was nearly in tears at the end of it.


Completing week 5 for me was knowing I could go on and complete the programme. As others are saying it's an emotional and exciting one!


Hi all I've just found this forum and have completed week 5 run 1 this morning. Really nervous about run 3 and hope I can do it! Glad to see this post reminding me others have done it so it's possible.
