My first 5K park run...success!!

I did it! I loved it! I’m doing again!

What a fab morning. Never ran so much for so long. Can’t believe I did it & looking forward to doing another. I didn’t use the app, I just did it my own way with my friend. Everyone was so supportive & friendly. The couch to 5K has helped me so much, given me so much confidence. I’m on week 5 run 3 & now know I can do it with no worry at all.

Sounds like you’ve got the Running Bug now. Watch out - there’s no known cure! 🤣

Will do. I’m definitely not interested in going too fast, it’s too exhausting 😁.

Thanks, I needed the half way push/motivation & went out of my boundaries.

I completed my 5k in week 8.. Got to the end of the 28miutes and just carried on til I reached 5k.. 34mins. 👍

Well done. It is so life affirming. I fell in love with it this year. I now hate missing it. 👏👏🏅😊🏃🏻‍♀️

Well done! It is quite an achievement. Just run / jog/ walk at a conversational pace. Try to go to parkrun regularly and you'll get to know the other regulars.
