Progress after nearly 2 months post completion of C25k

I completed th programme at the beginning of the year and have managed to get 3 runs in every week of 5k, i’ve had t be watchful of the weather and have dodged some downpours.

On some days i’ve set out thinking i’ll make this a short one but always when I get to the 4k point I think no I’ll keep going, my time is not decreasing as fast as i’d like (it’s currently around 28min) but I’m boosted by the comments here that the time is about right, my weight has dropped from 15st 10 to 13st 7, some of that is down to diet but i’d like to think the 5ks have played a part

One thing that has stood out here is the tremendous support everyone gives to each other. i’d like to give some thing back here as well, to all those starting out , just believe in your self, you can and will achieve the 5k target it not magic it’s proven scientifically that the programme you are following will give the result you are aiming for

keep running

Sadly the 5Ks are unlikely to have played a big part in your weight loss, but will have played a part in the general toning of your body - looking in much better shape. Did you not get a 'graduate' badge?
