Woohooo loving this app didn’t think I’d get this far as I’m a run / walker and a good talker my mission is to finish a 5k without walking in between running something I’ve always done Think I need to be brainwashed to get this idea Im my head of right Amanda you need to have a little walk now it’s not that my legs hurt maybee it’s my breathing pattern Il only walk for maybee few seconds And I’m off again , I’m really hoping I can get over this looking forward to progressing over the next few weeks , any advice on this run walk thing

If you follow the programme as laid down you'll be fine It’s specifically designed to get folks running solidly for 30 minutes at the end of the 9 weeks. If you go slowly you’ll nail the sessions You get told when to walk and went to jog on. Just think about the session immediately facing you 🙂

Have you read the FAQ’s pinned post? 👍

The whole run walk thing is tried and tested. You can have complete faith in it 💪👍😃🏃‍♀️

I’m really excited about it , all comments on couch to 5k are all positive with no horror stories I’ve told my family if I succeed I’m going to throw a party 😂😂😂

As misswobble has said go “slow”. I pace it between 🐌&🐢. I’ve recently paid the price not adhering to this pace😜As for the breathing malarkey, go with whatever suits you best. I’m a converted mouth breather (l don’t think I’m painting a very good image of myself 😂) Run to time rather than distance as you progress through your journey. Your doing fab👍🏻
