One year ago today I started my running journey with Couch to 5k! I’ve not had the easiest of journeys and while many at this stage are already onto park runs and 10kms... I’m not. But you know what, that doesn’t stop me loving this place, all of you on here and simply being able to get out there and run when I can! Thanks forum friends and here’s to another year of running. 🏃♀️🌷😊
Runniversary: One year ago today I started my... - Couch to 5K
Couch to 5K
Happy Runniversary CatMo!! You should be so proud of this day!! I hope to follow in your footsteps and make my Runniversary too!! It really doesn’t matter how often or how far you run, you’re running and it’s now been a year! How amazing you are!! Fantastic!! Big hugs! 🥰❤️
Happy Runniversary! A whole year of running is an achievement in itself. It doesn't matter how far you go or how fast - it's all about getting out there and enjoying it, and it sounds like you do.
Here's to the next year of running! 🏃♀️
Cheers CatMo13! You are brilliant and your approach is great! Keep running! Keep smiling!
Happy, happy runniversary Catmo13!😀
You are not alone with not having the easiest of journeys /not getting to Parkrun & longer distances- that’s me too. - But I’ve decided that “run as you can” is so much better than not running at all. 😄
I hope you enjoy many happy runs in 2019.😃
Good luck this year. Have you changed your name 😝
Happy Runniversary CatMo🎉😊
I agree with the others...you are still running and therefore still winning!
Happy running in 2019😊xxx
Thank you Bluebird.. and for all the support you have given me 🤗I do get embarrassed by my short runs on Strava but I guess as everyone says it’s just getting out there that matters 😁
Please don't worry about that...I took ages to get to 5k, and had been running for about two years when I reached 10k with Ju Ju's plan. It really doesn't matter, everyone supports each other without comparison. You are keeping going, building strength despite your setbacks and doing brilliantly! 😊xxx
I started a year ago too. I did my first Park Run yesterday. We are still getting out there, and we haven't given up. Here's to another year of runs...however long or short they may be.
Catmo13 what a star. 🌟🌟🌟🌟Happy Happy Runnivrersary. What a fabulous achievement. A whole year of a running you. Simply awesome in my book and huge well done. it’s not about pace, time or distances it’s just about being a healthier happier you and doing something just for you. Wishing you Many Happy running days ahead 🏃🏼♀️😃🌟
Hi CatMo, well done you, still running after a year, bet ya didn’t think that would happen a year ago. In the scheme of things parkruns and 10kms don’t really matter, running for pleasure and wow! cos we can and being able to share the runs with our forum friends because they get us. Isn’t it great? 👍
well done for running for a whole year. Don't compare yourself with others but with yourself a year ago. I bet if you add all those runs together you will find yourself a long way away
Keep at it!
Nice to hear from you again CatMo13!
Congratulations on making it to your runniversary. 😸
Thank you Katnap, and I see congratulations are in order for you too making your 10km! Amazing ! 🙌
Aye! But suffering for it now with aching knees and ankles!
Tell me about aching knees! At least you’ve done a valid distance to earn that 😁 I did 2.5km and I’ve got aching knees 🙄.
I've jogged with someone who runs half marathons (loves them) and marathons. He said he always has aches and pains but they tend to go after 10-15 minutes running.
I think he could run every day.
I can relate to that yes, but then I find later in the day I have the aches. So now I’ve had four days off to recover my knee. So am thinking will try out a short run this morning. 🤞
I've just claimed today as my 2 month runniversary since graduating C25k. We had Kelly Holmes join us at our local parkrun!
Check out my post! 😸
