Thinking I might actually be able to do this!


I’ve been running on & off (due to a rotten cold) for 5 weeks. I’m not overweight but just don’t feel fit or healthy.

I’ve loved doing the couch to 5k as it’s given me the confidence to run.

Today I started week3 (repeated other weeks after being poorly) & found a comfortable pace & managed to run 3k.

Never in my dreams did I think I could run consistently for that long & I actually loved it!!

Keep on going, you’re doing great- despite illness you’re back out there. That shows me that you like it.

It’s so hard in some aspects we hadn’t thought of isn’t it? However, I keep telling myself the rewards are worth it already.

See you around fellow runner! Pam


Brilliant., well done

Keep going nice and steady and you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve 💪👍😃🏃‍♀️


Great job. There’s a lot of correlation between weight and health, but not between weight and fitness. Like you I wasn’t overweight when I started this, but I was completely unfit. Not any more and your fitness is certainly kicking in now. Soon what you are running now will be your warmup... ain’t that exciting?
