Discipline paid off

Good morning all you wonderful people just got to say I really enjoy reading your posts I can really relate to them and they are a real encouragement to me, I am 61 and never thought I would be disciplined or have the ability to complete my couch to 5k and continue to run 3 times a week, it has made a real difference to my fitness and it is a great benifit to my everyday life thank you all you are such an encouragement to me and j am so glad I found your group happy running

Well done you.

I totally agree with all you say. I'm 60 and am so pleased that I have started running albeit a bit late in life. (Started C25k Feb, graduated Apr)

Good luck with all your future runs.


Good to see some other “mature” runners on here. I started in August aged 64 and graduated 8 weeks later. Now trying to build up my stamina, doing Parkrun most Saturdays and am probably fitter than I was in my 30’s. age is no barrier 😁
