I have always claimed I can never run and had this reinforced by sport at school throughout my childhood. Despite past encouragement it has taken me to get to 42 and other mums to get me to give it a go. I was planning to join a Couch to 5k group run at the local park but we were going to go away for parts of the summer so my husband suggested I just did the app and get on with it. I did. It wasn't easy - running for 1 min was hideous. Around week 4 I had large pain in my lower leg and had to rest up and nearly gave up. But I didn't. And after completing Week 9 I did my first Parkrun on Saturday. I was aiming for around 38 mins and did it in 35.49. A huge thanks to the app and this group. Onwards and upwards.
I did it!: I have always claimed I can never run... - Couch to 5K
