Couch to 5K

I only went and run for 20mins...woo hoo! Wk5 R3 completed 😀

I only went and run for 20mins...woo hoo! Wk5 R3 completed 😀

An unexpected day off meant I was able to head out today to run my final run of Wk5.

As I started out it started to snow and quite a blizzard to begin with but I was determined to not let this stop me. The first 10mins felt quite comfortable, 10-15mins tougher and 15-20mins a real challenge!! But I dug deep and I kept saying to myself “slow and steady, slow and steady” and managed to run for the full 20mins, I’m still in shock to be honest 🤣 the sun was shining beautifully when I finished and summed up the end of my run.

Thank you to everyone who has given me so many top tips, advice and motivation to get me through Wk5 I really appreciate it 🙌 now bring on Wk6!!

Well done! I'm heading out to do this run this morning. It's minus 5 but at least the sun is shining!

How did you get on triumphbabe? Hope you had a good run in the sun despite the freezing temperatures 👍

I left it until the afternoon, when it had gone up to minus 3! It went really well, the time flew by and I felt really comfortable with it. Can't wait for next run tomorrow. Thanks for asking x

That’s brilliant, well done! I reached that point two weeks ago but a painful hip has meant 2 weeks off. I’m hoping to resume running next Monday and redo week 5 to get back into it. So you’ve overtaken me but BRILLIANT

Hope you’re able to get back to it on Monday 👍 I’m hoping to do my next run tomorrow but at the moment we’ve got a lot of snow so I will have to see if it’s safe to do so.

Happy running!
