Should I be feeling this pleased with myself? First run week 9, bloody brilliant. Usual hard first kilometer then in to my stride and with Laura's encouragement 30 minutes non stop. Can't believe it actually. Followed the plan, followed the advice of good folks on here. No repeats needed, no injuries, no issues with my sometimes sore knees. Bit naughty for first time today - carried on for my first 5k in a somewhat surprising 36' 52" Sorry to babble on just had to share with people who know what it feels like.....C25k is brilliant
w9r1 oh yeah baby : Should I be feeling this... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
i know what you mean i did the same but well done what a great feeling
Of course you should be feeling pleased with yourself! Two milestones in one day - 30 minutes run AND 5k completed. You should be ecstatic!
Super well done!!
Well done!!tgsts inspiring Indeed for a non runner unfit old girl who has just done w1 r1!!
Yes you absolutely should feel pleased with yourself. You're doing something life-changing! Well done on a fantastic long run 😁😁
Well done, I’ve only done the first run....I’ll be excited when I get to week9 too 😊
Awesome Steve! Its nice to get a milestone distance under your belt. Celebrate by completing the course and plan your future running milestones 😸
Well done👍 you've earned the right to feel very proud of yourself so enjoy it😊. I have this run tomorrow but figure if I can do 28 mins I can do 30!
You know you can definitely do 30!! Enjoy your graduation week
Well done Stevie be pleased and proud you have cracked it. I've got W9 to start tomorrow so not far behind you.
Thanks Sunny, enjoy your graduation week
Yes you should steviej99, you’ve just bagged your 5k and have every right to be chuffed to bits! Amazing feeling! 🔥⭐️
Great job and congrats on the PB. Best advice I can give is to keep the others at 30 now, you wouldn’t want an injury at this late stage!
No, there’s no way you should be feeling that pleases with yourself, you should be feeling at least twice that much!
Thanks UNM. Yep one midweek slow and easy 30 minutes for R2 then amazingly my graduation and first Parkrun next Saturday!!
Absolutely you should. Well done and keep at it to keep fit to enjoy life ....health is everything.
Well done you ! Good time for your first 5k too 🏃🏻♂️
Well done! You should be VERY pleased!! Just about to start week 5 here, and should graduate on 19th December - a month before my 60th birthday ....so you are an inspiration!
Thanks Sue, hope your enjoying the plan as much as I am. I like reading all the success stories on here. Very motivating. Happy running!!
I am loving it! Six years ago this month I was on chemotherapy & couldn’t even walk up the stairs, so I am loving every moment! Hope you’ll be cracking the bubbly in a few days time ....
