I did my first run after completing the program and was able to do the 5k, it took me nearly 50 minutes but I was determined to go the distance this morning. I'm absolutely chuffed to bits and seriously thinking about checking out the local Parkrun on Saturday. So very grateful for the C25K podcasts for getting me here and giving me the confidence to go for it. Have a great day everyone 😀
