Absolutely delighted to have completed the programme today. At the end of the 30 minutes, I was still feeling good so I kept on going. I did 5k in 33:20 🎉
When I first started C25K, I never thought I would stick to it. I have always been adamant that I hate running, but I think I just hated being bad at it 😂 Going back as far as school, I never ran. I was always “unwell” on cross country day, or I’d use the time to have a slow walk and chat with my friends. I always chose the sports which I could remain stationary 90%+ of the time in PE.
Couch to 5k has been amazing for me. I now enjoy running, and will consolidate and maybe even consider running further in the future. I honestly can’t believe how far I have come. Week 1 exhausted me and now here I am. I’m thrilled and now consider myself a runner, which I never thought would happen 🏃🏻♀️
Thank you so much to everyone on here who has been so supportive and given advice along the way! I couldn’t have done it without the encouragement of this group 💕
