Really well doneπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ that was about my time for my first 5 k. It’s a good time cos you don’t want to run too fast Slow and steady is always the mantra to reduce risk of injury.

Wow well done you . you've helped given me the encouragement to start. I turned 50 this year and overweight, I have had this app for over a month now but still not started. Thank you x

Please do ….it’ll be the best thing you’ve done in a while and what great sense of achievement you’ll feel on completion. Follow the guidance and I promise you’ll complete it πŸ’•

The hardest thing about C25K is putting on your trainers and getting out of the door for your first run. Take it slow and trust the program. It's about training your mind as well as your body. By about week 5, I learnt that much is having belief in yourself... the program works... you're doing the program... so logic states that you can complete it. So.. what are you waiting for?!?

Please start it is so worth it.x

Well done !!!! That’s around my times at present !!! In competition with no one but myself. My work colleagues are in awe of me and I’ve inspired many to follow suit ….that makes me happy ❀️
