Finished week 1!!!

Hi everyone, I have recently joined the C25k movement, inspired by a friend. I am trying to get back into shape after having a baby 9 months ago. I know, I am only in the begining of the journey, but to me, each run is a big achievement. I have tried to get into running several times before, but always gave up. I even held back from posting here before because I was afraid of giving up before the end of week 1! So I really need the support from this comminity.

The road ahead will be long, but I hope I can do it. Brong on week 2!

Welcome to the forum and well done on getting started.

The guide to the plan is essential reading healthunlocked.com/couchto5...…….what-next

C25K really is a brilliantly successful way to learn to run, with a gently progressive structure that brings rewards and identifiable progress in a very short time. This community is the icing on the cake and we will cheer you to the finish line.

Enjoy your journey.

I gave you the wrong link. This healthunlocked.com/couchto5... will be more use, I suspect.

Wahey! Week 1 done and dusted, onwards and upwards! You can definitely do it! 🎉🎊 I don’t think anyone who has ever joined this programme was a runner before they started. I hated running a few months back and would have laughed to think I might get to a point where I could run for 20 minutes straight without collapsing. But, you will get there :) Just don’t go too fast, the aim is to be able to run for prolonged periods, so it’s about stamina rather than speed.
