So I've been leaving the house and running from there, sadly it incorporates big hills for the first half. The first run this week nearly broke me. So at 6.45am I set off to our local locks and walked the 5min warm up walk to the reservoir. Perfect timing I set off running my 28mins. The Res is 1.1km round according to Google maps, so I was determined to run around 5 times!! I'd just started the 5th lap and Sarah told me I'd done it. My 28mins were up. Like hell they are I said out loud. I carried on and stopped running after 35mins and 29 seconds. I still did a warm down walk as I needed to get back to my car. But according to my run log I ran 3.17miles / 5.10k. I'm proud as punch....now I need a shower!

Couch to 5K
Well run! That’s a really good time.
Is it??? Really? I thought the idea was 5k in 30mins. I was quite disappointed with myself, but proud I'd done it at the same time. I'm doing a park run at the end of this month. The lady I'm doing it with did the London marathon this year in 4hr 44mins. I think this is going to be the slowest she's ever done
Only 10% of C25kers make it to 5k within 30 mins by the end of the programme.
Sadly it is the one fault with the programme - despite the catchy name, the aim is “three 30 minute runs in seven days”.
I reached about 3.4k within the 30 and it now takes me 44 to do 5k.
That's still good though!! I agree, it's very misleading but wow how far we've come. I can't believe the first 60sec run nearly killed me and look what we're all doing! It's incredible
