We want to post a few words of encouragement to all those undertaking the Couch to 5K challenge. My 21 year old daughter stumbled across the NHS podcast nine weeks ago and decided to embark on the training. I dragged my 58 year old, very tired body along on the spur of the moment. Neither of us have done absolutely any sporting activity before, we were completely unfit and felt self conscious running in our local park. There were times when we wanted to give up, especially me as my calf really hurt. We persevered and completed the training yesterday. We're elated. Whoever designed this course deserves a medal: you've turned two sedentary souls into active humans. If we can do it, anyone can.
