Well done to all those starting Couch to 5K. If I can do it, you can and will do it too. That's not saying it's easy - but keep sticking to programme and you will get there. I've repeated a few weeks and have now started week 8 and so pleased to get here.
After first couple of weeks, I never dreamt I would be running for 28 mins but the feeling was incredible. I let out a little cheer in park in front of woman walking her dog.
It's taken me about 10 weeks rather than 8 to get here but I'm happy with that as have a long commute after working day. I suffer from low moods and sometimes struggle to get out to run after a bad day at work, or on a Saturday when just want to stay in bed. I've occasionally felt like giving up half way when anxiety kicks in after a mile or so, but kept going with music playing as the great feeling at end is worth fighting through.
Can't wait to finish 9th week and graduate - after running on Saturday I feel my legs may need an extra day to recover. Although, not sure I should put off what I should be doing tonight!
Will strangely miss it if I don't go tonight which I never thought I'd say 😊 Running allows me to continue eating those Waitrose pecan yumyums I'm addicted to with slightly less guilt! Maybe they undo the good work, but life is too short not to have odd treat still!
This community definitely helps keep me motivated too - after reading all others messages, I wanted to add my own thoughts
