Couch to 5K

Day 1 done!

Just did my first run of C25k along the river! Didn't fall over or die, hooray! Having not done any cardio for a long time other than the odd swim, running for 8 minutes out of 30 isn't something I thought I'd be able to manage first time so I'm feeling pretty great now. I think (with the help of Michael Johnson!) this app is going to revolutionise my life.

You have to build up lung and leg power, upper body, core etc etc. It takes time of course but it’s great to do 💪🙂🏃‍♀️👍✔️

Well done. It will get easier. As others have said, the key to success is to run SLOWLY and to keep going.
