On the 3rd March I decided to give the couch to 5k a go. As an overweight 48 year old I couldn’t run for a minute without stopping. Fast forward 3 months and today I’ve not only completed the couch to 5k but ran my first 10k today running for well over an hour without stopping.

If I can do it you can also

Great work 💥💥. Although I’m only on week 6 I’ve booked in for a 10k in October as a target

Wow, is an hour even possible? Goodness. Unimaginable, but I'm looking forward to 5 minutes. Well done you!
