Return to Couch to 5K


10 months ago I completed the Couch to 5K challenge. After a few good months of 30 minute runs by November 2017 I had reduced that to a 1 mile run every other day. This was down to a combination of things; promotion at work, diagnosis of an under thyroid, weight gain but mostly overall laziness. I decided to come back as I remember how encouraging everyone was and I definitely need that in my life again!

I really want to get back into running longer distances. I skipped week 1 and have already rerun the following 3 weeks of Couch to 5K and will be starting week 5 again this week! I am slightly nervous as I haven't run longer than 15 minutes at a time in many many months.

Fingers crossed I get through week 5!

You will get through week 5! You’ve done it before 😊😊 I’m just building up to my 3 x 5ks a week and my main worry is motivation! Will I be able to keep it going 😱. So come on. We’ll motivate each other 😀😀
