What to expect on Week 1 Day 1

Runnected profile image

Hi all. Hope everyone's fit and well.

About 4 years ago I graduated from C25K and can, hand on beating heart, say it changed my life. I've since run the London 10K and am presently training for a half-marathon.

However, I still remember very well how intimidating 5K was, so if you'd like to feel a little more prepared before you start, I've written a post all about my Week 1 Day 1 experience. You can find it here: runnected.com/2018/11/21/c2...

Hope it helps.

Good post! I felt exactly the same on day one. In fact, when they said run for 60 seconds I said "not a chance". But I did it. It's amazing what we can all achieve on this programme!

Oh W1R1 still gives me nightmares! We all get to beat it though. Nice post, and so good to hear about onward progress... I guess the marathon is calling too!?
