Yay, yay! So pleased with myself!!! Cannot believe I have made it to the end, take that 2019 😂 I have lost over 4 stones with Weightwatchers and gone from gp telling to reduce my walking to RUNNING for 30 minutes 🤯 how great is c25k? 😍💕
I did it! W9 R3 competed today 🎉: Yay, yay! So... - Couch to 5K

Keep running, keep smiling.
Thanks, that's really helpful. I am not sure what I will do next I have achieved my weightloss goal and also I started c25k on a bit of a whim so I am quite surprised I made it to the end and how much I have enjoyed it. I am nowhere near reaching 5k in my 30 min runs so I vaguely thought I would keep running for 30 minutes and hopefully get faster? Or maybe I can start to increase my running time at some point? I would like to run the whole 5k parkrun course eventually even if it takes longer than 30 minutes. Time to start some new year's resolutions 🙂
Congratulations, sarahbee. A fabulous achievement, especially so at this time of year - cold, wet, etc. Whatever you do next there is always help and support on this forum. I still mainly do 30min runs (graduated 6months ago), but go for a longer run every now and again. I find the longer run actually helps me to run faster on the shorter 30 min runs. Best to find what works for you. Happy 2020!
Wow wow wow. Many congratulations.
My first 5k took 52 mins. That was 3 months after graduation. 2 months after that i did 5k in 38. I had to slow down after that one to avoid injury. Now I’m around 45 mins. My 2020 aim is to do 5k in 30.
Take it slow and enjoy your consolidation runs. Vary speeds and distances. Each run can be very different.
Thanks😊 well done to you too! My weight loss is really down to Weightwatchers but the running has definitely helped boost that it. It took me about 8 months to reach my goal weight. I dread to think how much I have put on over Christmas but I know if I stick with what I have been doing I can get it off again so no regrets!
