Today I completed week 9 run 3. I guess I am now a Couch to 5K graduate! Enormously chuffed with my progress and current fitness level. I started this challenge almost on a whim, after I'd had a good week of other exercise and felt the benefit. My thinking was: if I started that programme now, I would be finished just in time for my holiday. I am 46 and the only time I had ever run before was when my books were due back and the library was about to close! Feeling good, looking pretty good, and definitely planning to keep up the running habit. So amazed with how effective this programme is - it never felt unbearably hard, and, due to dumb luck or something else, I stayed injury-free and on schedule throughout.
