Finally completed week 9 run 3 today! As an overweight 40 year old mum of of 2, I never thought I would finish this, or enjoy it so much! I never missed a day and I ran through wind, rain and snow. I signed up to help with weight loss, but I run now mainly for mental health benefits. Everything seems better after a run I find. This is such a wonderful community, I’ve been so inspired by everyone’s stories and words of wisdom. So thank you!

Couch to 5K
Welcome to the forum and many congratulations on your graduation, fellow runner.
I hope that you did miss a day. As a new runner you should not run on consecutive days.

Keep running, keep smiling.
Congratulations! I graduated last Thursday, loving running, I get grumpy on rest days because I can't go out on a run, running definitely helps with my mental health. Enjoy your running skills, well done!!!
Well done, that is fantastic, you must be feeling so proud of yourself 👋👋
Thank you! Yes I’m a little smug today 🤣
Congratulations on completing run 3 of week 9 and graduating from C25K, well done.
I do agree with you regarding this forum as "as a wonderful community" much better than Facebook or Twitter.
Well done Beachgirl19! What an achievement 🎉. Bet you’re on cloud 9 😀. Amazing things happen when we let them. 🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆
Congratulations Beachgirl, I’m due to graduate tomorrow!
Fabulous! Well done!
I completed W9 R9 as well today. Yay!
Isn't this programme excellent? I am a 50 something, never run before, overweight diabetic and I am so proud of myself.
Like you, I think the biggest benefit has been to my mental health. I just feel less anxious and just love being outdoors. I am lucky to live right next to a country park and have seen deer, birds of prey and lizards while running. Just makes me feel nature is so wonderful.
Well done again! 👏👏👏
What do you plan to do next?
Well done to you too! It’s an amazing feeling isn’t it?
I’m lucky like you, I live in south Devon and surrounded by beautiful coastline. Makes my runs a lot easier being by the sea.
I think I’m going to do a few weeks at 30 mins then try and increase to 5k. My longest distance so far is just over 4K.
What about you? What’s your plan?
Well done. South Devon is lovely. Of course South London is fantastic too, just in a different way!
I’ve done W9R3 this morning. Shaved over a minute off my PB too. If you want to increase your speed, run with a teenager!!! 😓
