I started this program at the very end of April having not run since school days. I am 63 and I am just loving the new me! My friends thought I was bonkers . The benefits to mental health and confidence are indescribable let alone improved fitness. I have read the comments on this forum most days which have given me such inspiration and motivation so a huge thank you to everyone and also the wise advice from the administrators. Doctors should be promoting this app on their surgeries I think!

And my reward? I have just ordered a treadmill for winter jogging!

℞ One course of Couch to 5k, to be taken three times a week.

Having just completed Week 5, I honestly feel better than I have for years.

Congratulations on graduating. 🍾🏅🏆

What a great idea GP's promoting/ prescribing C25K.

Works wonders on so many things.

You’ll get there! The program trains you for it. I took it very slowly and just did 2 runs a week. Good luck!

Brilliant! I am doing W9run2 next. Never run before aged 66. It is very challenging but so proud to get this far. I won’t stop running now. I think it is so good for strengthening your will power and motivation. Well done you.
