I did it!! This morning I graduated! Week 9 Run 3 is in the bag - and I feel amazing!!

Although a little slower this morning it’s the completing that 30min run that counts. I have discovered this week that if I run for 30mins, walk my 5min cool down then begin to run again I can reach the elusive 5km!! Which I’ve done twice this week!

My aim was always to complete my first park run - and that is exactly what I feel ready to do this Saturday!

Couch to 5k has been amazing, at times hard and yes Michael Johnson has been told to go where the sun doesn’t shine at times, but is a program that totally works!

I literally went from my couch, due to major surgery, and 9 weeks later I’m running 5km!!

My aim now is to complete many park runs with the view to training for a 10k next year. I’m in awe of how my body has recovered and is able to do this! We really are amazing as human beings!!

Thanks for the encouragement on this forum - it’s been an amazing journey and here’s to the next stage! 😘

Take care! Running 5k is hard, even harder if you push for 30 minutes. As a new runner you need time to build your running legs, so be patient and don’t push too hard or you”ll get injured

Congratulations for completing the program and Graduating Mummymaw...

Well done, as Misswobble has suggested do take care not to overdo your running at this early stage. Just 30 minute runs will make sure you grow stronger, without risking an injury...
