I cannot believe i just ran 20 minutes without stopping. Me! An overweight 40 something who until this program, hadn't run since my late teens. It took me 2.5 hours this morning to talk myself into attempting this milestone run and I definitely didn't think I would do it but I did! I am buzzing, I even had a little victory dance around my kitchen when I got home haha. For any of you trying to find the bravery to attempt this run like I was this morning, just go for it. The program works, you ARE ready and you'll do it! Xxx
W5R3 done!: I cannot believe i just ran 2... - Couch to 5K

That’s amazing! I’m still on week one, day one. Feels like Groundhog Day and I can’t see me getting to W2 let alone W5. That’s an amazing achievement! You have a right to be so so proud.
I stayed on week one for 4 weeks! When I finally braved week 2, and realised it was do-able I promised myself I'd be brave and try the runs in sequence. And have managed them all so far. The program really does work so trust it, and go for it, you'll be fine, honestly
Hi Jue, well done! I did w5r3 yesterday, I know how you're 🏆😀
Welcome to the forum and very well done. That run is a mental challenge for sure, and you just smashed that barrier down in style. Enjoy week 6... slow and steady!
Brilliant! Well done - I’m a couple of runs behind you and worrying already about how I’m going to manage the full 20 🤞
Well done, I start week 5 today, not worried about r1 but not sure I'm up to a full 20 mins yet, time will tell!
Not what you're looking for?
