After starting couch25k in March and graduating in April today I completed my first ever 5k run, and in under 45 minutes!
I’m so happy and can’t believe I did it! I started trying to get my health in order in January and by February I had stopped smoking and joined the gym.
After my one month review the gym immediately closed as lockdown began! I’d lost 2 stone and felt a panic set in.
Luckily I took up couch25k and managed to complete it! I paired this with daily yoga which helps with my muscles and breathing as well!
Don’t let anything beat you! I have since lost another 2 stone but still have 4 stone to lose, so really this programme is for anyone!
Ok, enough excited exclamation marks! Here is a picture of my happy, post 5k red face!
