Hi everyone I have just started Couch to 5k. I am only on wk 1 and just done my second day. Just wanted to say hello.

About me: I am certainly not a girl, and doing the run this morning confirmed it. I am actually going to be 60 this year and have never run before!

Good morning Saffy girl. Good luck with the programme. You will find that this forum is really inspirational and motivational. It would be great to hear of your progress.

Happy running 🏃‍♀️

Good work. You’ve started it that’s the main thing and also showing that age is no excuse. Keep it up. Personally it’s something I’ve to get round to as well

I found them both really tough, but I am also really pleased with myself for finishing them!
