Eleven weeks ago I started week one of this Couch to 5K programme, I ran the first week running for 60 seconds seven times and I felt like I was going to die. My everything hurt and my chest felt like it was going to explode and I honestly didn’t think I would ever make it to the end of week one let alone the end of the programme; but I’m stubborn and I kept going, repeated a couple of the weeks I struggled with and today I ran for 30 whole minutes for the third time this week and earned myself a trophy 🏆. So now I’m a graduate, I can run 5k non stop and although quite a lot still hurts, I no longer feel like my chest wants to explode or like I’m going to cark it 😆 It works, Couch to 5K really works! I know cos I’m the proof 😁
