I did it! Second attempt at the first run and I did it! Even more amazingly I actually enjoyed it. Can’t wait for the next one 💪🏻
Week 1 Run 1 - Second Attempt!!: I did it... - Couch to 5K
I run at several different speeds, with a 5 minutes per mile difference between my “fast” and my easy... I much prefer my easy, and those are the runs that increase health, fitness and endurance. There’s a time and a place for a fast run... on most days it’s about being comfortable and happy out there. Never worry about pace... just try to finish each run feeling how you did today.
I’ve been passed a parkrun by a mum pushing pretty newborn twins in a double pram... and I’m damn proud of both me and that mum on that run.
Way to go 👏👏👏👏👏that's brilliant! First one is a killer so to say you enjoyed it is a great start. Honestly I wish when I started I had took the pressure off myself and accepted the slow pace it will make your runs more enjoyable. I'm still running slow but I'm learning to just run. I tried to get a friend of mine to take up C25K her answer was that she's a pro at the couch part. So the fact your out there doing it puts you ahead of the game. Keep enjoying the best is yet to come. You've got this 💪💪💪
Thank you so much! I’m definitely also on the very slow pace. But if it helps me enjoy it more and actually get out there then why not! I’m also trying to get a friend into it actually as I’m thinking it would be nice to have someone to mutually motivate. But we will see! Can’t quite believe that I could run for 30 mins by the end of the program but will just take it slow 😊
I felt the exact same when I started... It seems completely unfeasible. I struggle with weak ankles so was extra concerned about running but the program is so good and moves at the perfect pace to build up your stamina. Just take it easy and run slowly, there’s no race. I’m now on week 8, so it’s definitely achievable. Everything is all in the mind, you’ve got this! And an extra well done at completing the hardest step - getting off the couch! 😁
