I never thought I could finish Couch to 5K - WK9R3

Probably one of the hardest things I have had to do, especially knowing I was about to graduate but I persevered and completed my last race. A couple of years ago, I couldn't go round our local park (2.3 miles) without stopping at least 5/6 times. Somehow, i was able to run for 30 minutes. I had my Nike Run Club App run at the same time and covered about 4.39km. I think I am going to carry on doing 30 minutes run to build endurance till I am comfortable enough to hit 5k. Big thanks/love to the community, all the best and be safe my fellow runners.

Blessings x

Congratulations! Did you use a guided run? Coach Bennett has a few runs of the right lengths for you... and there’s a guided 5k or two for when you’re ready... his coaching really rocks.

Celebrate well, enjoy that consolidation work and all your future running adventures

Awww big thank U! I just set the timer to 30 minutes :), nice one for the Coach Bennett recommendations, the Nike app really looks interesting. I reckon it will be my go2 app going forward, big thanks for the encouragement. All the best.
