It's infectious!

Came home from work tonight to find my partner flushed in the face in running gear and trainers. Thats really out of character for him. With a little quizzing he came clean, he started couch to 5k tonight!

All you wonderful people inspired me to complete this programme and in turn I have I inspired him.

Really proud of him, will do my best to keep him at it, will be great to have a running buddy 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♂️

No excuse now NOT to carry one. Nothing like friendly "rivalry" to spur you both on.

Excellent stuff, well done the both of you! I look forward to seeing him on here moaning about you pushing him!

Just need to get back at it myself. Been away on holiday and now not run for 12 days!!! Did a gym class yesterday and tonight. Will be back out there pounding the streets tomorrow evening.

Well done to you Sandi, has he got a username or has he registered here of C25K so he can report his progress, rather than you reporting on how he is progressing?

Have told him about this forum and all the support you get from here. He's not joined yet, but am sure he will soon

It’s happened in our house as well Sandi. Our youngest inspired me to get off my bottom and get fit again 6 months back, then my hubby Katnap started C25K a few weeks ago and our eldest son has also joined in. I’m still in shock. As infections go I think this is a pretty good virus to catch 🤣. Well done to you and your hubby 😃

You’re building quite a team there... some friends just got back from Equinox 24 and been telling me all about it... I guess I’m gonna have to go next year... and I see your post and I think “there’s 4 of an 8 already”.

That's brilliant! My husband got new runners yesterday and says he will start running with me.... did 3k today and he barely broke sweat. Ran a lot faster than me too. He hasn't run for 20 years. So annoying!

That’s awesome! I love running with my boyfriend, really motivates me
