Don't give up

This is my first running post in over a year. I stopped my couch to 5km runs in week 5 due to getting sick. After that I didn't continue and just dreamt of finishing the course.

Well 4 weeks ago I joined a local running club and yesterday evening I ran/jogged my 5km in 44 minutes non stop. After the 5km I walked for another km and then ran another after that. I am still overweight and my joints are reminding me this morning of this but I didn't quit. I looked at the program with positivity and said yup I can do this.

Take it 1 day at a time and enjoy the moment. Dont force it, if it dont work then take a shot at it later.

Joining the local running club was a big step for me and running outside "in public" was an even bigger one but gees I did it.

Now my running will continue, I found a hunger in me to run more than 5km. I will keep trying to improve on it daily.

Good luck all you can do it

Well done Jan your amazing keep at it

Hi, just looking at my previous posts as part of some soul searching and noticed you had replied, so thought I would see how you are doing with your goals? I too started a running programme but had to give up at around the 6 week point but intend to start again.
