Hi. I have completed the NHS couch to 5k programme. I was definitely not a runner and repeated week 1 six times before I felt ready to move on: the next few weeks were repeated 3 or 4 times. Partly this was because I wanted to keep the runs enjoyable rather than pushing myself, but from week 5, I felt ready move on weekly. Now enjoying running and feeling far fitter. It really was a great programme and Laura's guidance through the runs was invaluable.
