Don’t doubt the plan!


First rule of Couch to 5K club don’t doubt the plan.

29th July I couldn’t complete a full minute running! Today I beat the mountain of 20 mins.. anyone coming up to that stage and doubting it.. Don’t. Even my previous run I struggled to the end of the 8 mins

The plan works! I completed 2/3rds of a parkrun today in that 20 min run. Walked and a little bit of running at the end to complete the 5k. Next time I’m free for a parkrun I think I will be on target to complete the full 5k without walking.

Trust in the plan

Great job... and at parkrun too! You got this now... you just killed your fear!

Well done you. Fantastic achievement 👍🏻My 20min run scheduled for Friday next week !!


Well done! Thanks for this. I needed the reminder! Finishing up week 2 and still feel like the step up for each week is going to be impossible
