5k qualified!

Finished the program last week but hadn’t made it to 5k in 30 minutes, or at all to be honest! Got up at 5am to allow myself plenty of time but I did it! Took me 50 minutes but I couldn’t care less about the time. I did it. I was morbidly obese a couple years ago, not at my goal weight yet but now there’s no stopping me,

I’m ready for my 5k event this Saturday!

Brilliant. Well done. Hardly anyone finishes in 30 minutes so don’t fret about that.

I think I’ll be the same as I’m so slow and will take a while after I’ve achieved 30mins of running to then get to 5k in whatever time. Im at week 5 at mo, very over weight & trying to sort out that side too! At least I’m running...

Well done! Took me 45 mins this week! Will never do it in 30 mins ha ha! 🐌😎

I was hoping for 45 but I’ll take the 50!

Superb and congratulations to you. It takes a lot of courage to start to exercise when morbidly obese. But what an achievement, bet you never thought you would be posting this type of status.

Well done again and keep going. Your such an inspiration.

Thank you! I lost a huge chunk of the weight just lifting weights but really loving the running now!
