Hey all, going to do my first run tomorrow morning, using the couch to 5k app! Anyone else using that app for the first time?

Slow and steady is the mantra... rest days non-negotiable and keep posting!!! Enjoy!

Hello 🙋🏼‍♀️ I did my first run on Sunday my second Tuesday and I was meant to do my 3rd tonight but I've hurt my leg so hopefully this week if it allows. Welcome to c25k everyone on here seems really friendly and happy to answer lots of questions

Ahh no! Plenty rest and water they say, try some sports tape as well, works wonders sometimes

Ah that’s great to know! Will definitely be posting progress throughout the weeks


This is my first time using the C25K app/plan and am currently on Week 8 Run 2! The plan really does work if you follow it properly with rest days etc...! Take it slow and steady, happy running! 🏃‍♀️
