Graduated 10k today, if I can do it anyone can.

Graduated 10k today, if I can do it anyone can.

Just thought I would post this here as well as the other forum as an encouragement to anyone struggling, having second thoughts or doubting themselves. 4 months ago today I started Couch to 5k and couldn't run 60 seconds without dying. Today I did 10k for the first time.

The programme is absolutely brilliant and the advice and support on this forum is second to none. Keep going and you will succeed.

Run happy and run safe.

Wow, congratulations. 🙌🏻 You have done so well. You must be so proud of yourself. I can manage 5k but not sure I could ever reach the 10k barrier. That’s amazing. Keep enjoying your running 🙋🏻

I have run 6k so I suppose in time with more time and practise I could do it 👍🏻

Wow Chris, that's fantastic! Can you hear me clapping and cheering?!

I started about the same time as you and am nowhere near that- but one day I will be. 😀

At the moment I am just glad to have recovered from flu and be getting going again.

That's great news, congratulations!

I'm dreaming of being able to run 10k on a regular basis. Just completed R2,W4 and that goal seems like such a long way off...
