5.45km. W9r2

Went a bit bonkers after my week off!

I’m sure I’ll get told off a bit for going on for 43 minutes but somehow I’d have regretted it if I’d stopped at 30 minutes.

I may never, ever have a run as good as that again.

The point being, you can have a really demoralising week like I did recently and feel a total failure, then a run like this just happens!!

Thanks for all that lovely support I got last week. ❤️

Thankyou. 😊

I was just very confident that I would at least do 30 minutes because I’d done it once before. And the confidence paid off. The rest obviously helped too.

Well done Jude you inspire me more. Did my first 3 minute run Tuesday and I thought I was dying but I will keep going.

Well done Steve. I remember not believing I would do 3 minutes. It wasn’t that long ago either.

It’s not all plain sailing but trust in the plan. You CAN do it. 💪🏽

We don't do telling off...........just offer advice based on experience and what is considered sensible practice.

It is probably time for you to read the guide to post C25k running, here healthunlocked.com/couchto5...…….what-next

Take care.

Thankyou. Your advice as always is invaluable. And while us newbie runners are great at supporting each other it’s essential to have the experts watching over us. I think that’s why this app works so well. It’s a safe, happy, friendly but also regulated environment to start running in. Almost like a school.

I have read many if not all of your recommended posts and regard you as a true guru! I’ve tried to follow the program to the letter as much as I can but occasionally over-enthusiasm got to me.

I have no real intention of going on to 10km since I never believed I would do 5. Five is enough and I will try to do that as often as I feel like it to stay fit.

I’ve lost some weight, trimmed my thighs and tummy and am drinking less alcohol now I have a new hobby.

Thankyou IannodaTruffe 😊

We have all pushed the boundaries at some point and mostly get away with it...........but you feel a bloody fool on the occasion that you don't.

You will go on to do more than 5ks............

What a great party it would be! We’d have to wear labels to know who each other is but it would be fun!!
