Starting couch to 5k

NathanE profile image

Hi all I have been doing slimming world for 5motnhs now and lost 4 stone 8.5lbs and want to start the couch to 5k tonight...... Really excited! Even though it's raining and cold I have decided best time to start at least it can't get worse..... I'm doing it in reading if anybody wants to join me or I can join them would be great.


Just had a shower after my 1st day and it was amazing really enjoyed it especially in the rain..... This is going to be a challenge I'm going to enjoy and push through and then keep it up...... Thank you for all the support is amazing.

Slow and steady does it... remember this is not a weight loss programme... you may or may not lose weight... but... linked with a healthy eating regime, you will feel fitter and stronger and healthier:)

Well done you !

Very, very well done on your weight loss - that's amazing.

You will not regret getting off the couch and running with this programme, it's a life changer..!!

All the support, encouragement and inspiration is right here in this community. EVERYONE is with you all the way.

Take it slow and steady and you won't go far wrong.

Rain running is the best 😊

Good luck with your first run, and keep us all updated on your progress.
