I’m a 64-year-old cancer survivor and 18 months ago I weighed over 18 stones. I was on medication for diabetes and high blood pressure, I couldn’t walk very far and my eyesight was under threat. I joined Weight Watchers and lost 5 stones last year and I don’t take any medication now. I’ve put a little bit of weight on this year - nothing to worry about – but I’d like to get back to my peak again so that’s why I took up Couch to 5K. I have always found running hard and I thought that it would do me good. I completed W9R3 today in the rain and decided to try for a 5K. My route is several laps of my local park and I worked out that I would need to do 4 to reach 5k. I did it and I’m delighted. (In fact I ran a little extra because I was so worried in case I finished at 4.99K. I would have been gutted!). I plan to consolidate for a few weeks and then try a park run. The Couch to 5K programme is brilliant, the app is great and this forum is so supportive. Thank you to everyone who gave me tips and encouragement. I would like to do the same for other runners here and I feel great that I will be able to do so as a graduate now.
