Ok so I started the couch to 5k a few weeks ago as I am getting married next year and want to look amazing! Other people I know had started the couch to 5k so I thought if they can do it so can I!
The first week almost killedme. I couldn't believe how unfit I was and the thought of running an extra 30 seconds non stop felt almost impossible.
Skip forward 5 weeks and I have just competed a full 20 minutes without stopping. How the hell did I manage that when I almost died doing my final 8 minute run a couple of days before!
I never thought I would be able to get this far. I have truly shocked myself and just goes to show that anybody can do this if they put their mind to it.
Don't get me wrong the 20 minutes felt like a big struggle at certain times however my average speed was 5.9mph and my max speed was 6.4mph with an average pace of 10.36 per mile! I may not be marathon ready just yet but I am definitely heading in the right direction!
Edit: forgot to mention for the run itself I covered 1.9 miles
How did everybody else feel when they got to this point? Does it now start to feel easier?
