Week 6 is fine. It’s do-able. You did W5R3 so you can do your next run 😉

Yes it feels amazing. I’m so happy and never thought I could jog for 20 mins straight so it’s a real achievement for me 🙂

Congratulations on completing run 3 of week 5, that is a milestone run with C25K, onwards and upwards to week 6 run 1 but be careful about that run as it catches out some people with the interval walks and runs after the non stop 20 minutes of W5R3 which you have just ran

Thanks for the advise about week 6. Someone else has said the same thing so I will be careful 🙂

Welcome to the forum and well done on that milestone run..

This guide to the plan is essential reading healthunlocked.com/couchto5...

and includes advice on minimising impact, stretching after every run, hydration and strengthening exercises, all of which will help.

Enjoy your journey.

Thanks for the link and the extra information. Very helpful tips and advice 🙂

It's a big achievement! 😀

I’m doing mine at 6 tomorrow morning and am so nervous! I did it a couple of years ago and managed it then but this time round seems like such a big ask! No way I can run 20 mins this time!

You can do it. It took me two attempts but I got there in the end. Just pace yourself

Well done!! Huge achievement!!! I’m starting week 5 on Saturday…looking forward to doing more varied runs. I did it a few months ago before a broken foot 😩 so know it’s do-able but still a big challenge!

It was a challenge but it helped me to get into the ‘I can do it’ mindset. Don’t go too fast especially with you foot injury 🙂
