Couch to 5K

New Year's Resolution is Working!

New Year's Resolution is Working!

Finished my run today surrounded by snowdrops! Can hardly believe we're almost a month into the new year.

At beginning of January I pledged to run 3x a week and use C25K + podcasts in the hope of improving my 5k time. I graduated in November and ran my first 5k at the end of Dec taking 38.05 minutes.

Since 1st Jan I've run three times a week and have used the C25K + podcasts to add a bit of variety at least once a week.

Today running with the stamina podcast I ran 5k in 33.59 minutes! I'm so chuffed - when I started C25K in August I don't think I'd run properly since school (a good 30 years ago!)

Feel like 2018 is going to hold many more running adventures.

Hope you're all enjoying your weekend running.

Nice work! And thanks for the reminder about the + podcasts, it's been awhile since I've used them, it's perfect time for me to put them back in the rotation.

Really chuffed - and a bit disbelieving at first - did double check my tracking app!

The C25K + podcasts have really helped with making my pace more consistent. Still enjoy my more leisurely jogging with radio podcasts most of all though.

Brilliant. Well done. Love the photo too. I love this time of year, buds showing on the trees and daffodils are starting to sprout up. New life, warmer and longer days.
