After a long discussion with my running mate. I decided to go to my first 5K Parkrun next Saturday. Talk about jumping in at the deep end! He assured me that he will pace me and help improve my running technique. For someone who is still in Week 4, this is a massive step up. I will still continue to follow the couch to 5K programme and I won't use this as one of my scheduled runs. It just means I will finish the programme later than expected.
