Well I have done my first session of couch to 5K! I have to admit I wasn't able to complete all the runs, but I did 4 of them! The ones I couldn't run,I just briskly walked! I know it's not as good as being able to run them all, but I am a totally beginner and hopefully it's better than nothing!!
My first couch to 5K!: Well I have done my first... - Couch to 5K
I think you did fab !!! i think it counts as long as your doing more than a walk like the app says as long as you ca hold a conversation is enough
i'm trying to do all the research i can on this as would really love to start running ( not done any running since cross country in high school >.<)
I just need to get out there and do the first one !! im so nervous as im a big girl and a big chest ......
But mega well done on completing the first one x
Welcome to Couch to 5k and this great forum. I hope you get as much out of both of them as I have over the last couple of months. Sounds like you did great to me for your first outing.
There are many, many people on here who have started this programme as total beginners - me being one of them too - and we've trusted the programme and progressed each week BUT with no pressure. You can only do what you can do and you may even surprise yourself. I'm on week 9 and I remember week 1 being exhausting. Never, ever EVER did I think I'd find the stamina to get this far. Many people on here will tell you similar stories.
We're a lovely bunch on this forum (even if I do say so myself!) and we're with you every step of the way on your journey.
Well done for getting off the couch and making a start - that's the hard part over with
Keep us posted on your progress
