couch to 5k

I started couch to 5k and had just starting my week 6 which I was loving when my husband took ill and had to go to hospital. it was two weeks before I got back to running I went back to the beginning of week five it was such hard work I nearly quit but persevered. the next run I again did week 5 run 1 again it was hard but I did it so when I went back two days later I decided to do week 5 run 2 I did it with ease now I feel I am back on track looking forward to last run week 5 20 minutes.

I decided to do this as I don't want high blood pressure, heart disease or diabetes as well as doing couch to 5k I do kettlecise once a week and trampoline circuit once a week great for losing weight and toning.

  • Well done to you, keep going 😄

  • Sorry to hear about your husband. Hope he is better now. I admire your perseverance in carrying on. Looks like it has been rewarded.

  • yes and its good for my mental wellbeing. it helps to keep me focused and positive.

  • You've had a lot going on, haven't you? Carry on with the C25K - it will not only help you physically but will help you cope mentally with stuff too. And keep coming back here - so many lovely people to help you through.

  • I joined because I have the determination now to go on but no one knows what's round the corner so anyone who is doing couch to 5k. it's tough at times but each time you complete a run its a positive step towards the end and the start of a healthy new beginning If for any reason you have to put things on hold this does not mean its over. I just want people to know not to give up.
