Showered and refreshed with a glowing body having completed 40 minutes and 6.22k - including warm up and warm down walks - of my very last Couch to 5k runs.
I completed it once before, in November 2014, without the encouragement of this forum, and once done, the running stopped.
Because of this forum, I have finished this time thinking of things for the future - including Park Runs, (fortuitously just set up in my country) and some other 5k runs, so today should not be the end.
I have completed the runs this time at the age of 71 and a quarter, and after a heart operation five years ago for atrial fibrillation, so each time I set off I say careful goodbyes to the family..... but I kept coming back, even today.
So this is the proof that this course really does work and that anyone can do it. I promote it on my Twitter account every day, because as you all know life is so much better off the Couch.
Thanks for the encouragement everyone on this forum. I have a stack of stats if anyone else is nerdish enough to know how the nine weeks progressed.
