I've just completed W2R3 ! 2 weeks ago doing couch to 5K hadn't even entered into my mind. Kind of duped into it by my bestie who suggested a power walk one Monday evening (11th to be precise) which I'm always up for.... Then she says "well it's not exactly a power walk". I came up with all the excuses I could, no comfy trainers, week bladder, I'm knackered, Emmerdale is on soon, I've got a blister..... She had an answer for flipping everything, so within an hour I scrounged a load of running things from my next door neighbour & there I was puffing away almost at the end of my first run but thanking her for convincing me. Within an hour I'd downloaded the app myself, planned a shopping trip for new trainers and felt more determined than I have in years.
Fast forward 12 days and I've just completed week 2. I know it's still early days but feeling very proud of myself. Plus this morning I underestimated the distance I would travel so after heading in a new direction I quickly found myself running up hill, albeit a gradual one. But, I kept going and then enjoyed the return run back down again.
I hope I can manage week 3 as I've had a sneaky peak and am thinking OMG !! .... but also 'I can do this' 😊
