Loving reading the Forum comments



I only started last Saturday and struggled. I did run 3 last night and managed 6 of the 8 runs well in my case more like a shuffle but I am amazed how much I have come in in less than a week. Reading comments on here has been so helpful and inspiring. Iam going to repeat week one until I can do all 8 runs as I dont want to fell dishartened if I struggle with week 2. I did do a 20 min HIIT as well this week off Youtube so have gone from nothing to 4 lots of exercise in a week. Feel quite proud of myself.

Welcome to the forum and well done on getting started.

Have you read the guide to the plan healthunlocked.com/couchto5... which is full of tips.

Enjoy your journey.


Well done!

What made you unable to do the last two runs? Bet it was your brain talking you out of it??

When you do the repeats, try to make yourself keep going unless you are injured or actually, certifiably dead. And go as slow as you have to to do them.

Enjoy next week.
