Week 9 reality check


Can believe I’m on my week 9 runs - 1st one done today. I used to watch people on the treadmill and think I’d like to be able to run like them. Well now I can and this amazing app has helped me do it. Thinking back to school days and I was quite sporty, I don’t think I ever sweated the way I am doing now and looking like a 🍅. I don’t want this programme to end! SM said she was going to miss me and felt quite teary... I know how she feels.

I never ran in school. So C25K is certainly a new experience for me. I’m on week 5, so I have a long way to go but definitely would get there. 👍🏻👍🏻

I didn’t run either, was a net baller! 🙄 You’re over half way! Keep going 👍

Cheers will definitely be sticking to the plan.


I never ran anywhere at all - not even for a bus! 😂 This programme has changed my life 😁


Well done! Enjoy the last couple of runs - you know you can do 30 minutes now, so relax and cruise along. See you on the podium soon 👏🏃‍♀️😀


Go you... and the great thing is..this goes on :) Yeayayayayay!


I'm about to start week 9 today. It is totally amazing and feels great! I'm looking forward to beyond the program although it will seem odd! I look out of my window to the woods on the hillside and know that what I want out of running is to be able to scamper round there and enjoy the experience...so speed and endurance but also hills and uneven ground. The variety will be good!
