Welcome to the forum and the program !Well done on getting started .

Do have a read of the program guide .

healthunlocked.com/couchto5...

It's full of useful information to help you through the program .

If it felt hard try and slow it down .

Most people try to run too fast at first.

P.S At least you can run in the evening there without needing a head torch ๐Ÿ˜

Not sure about not needing a head torch. Maybe in the summertime, but only 4 hours of daylight at the moment โ˜บ๏ธThanks for the advice, I'll maybe slow it down a little on Thursday my next run

Yes true !It was a summertime when I was there in Isafjordur ๐Ÿ˜

Ahh the Westfjords are nice, we are further east in Akureyri

Welcome to the forum and well done on getting started.

Take it nice and easy.

Counterintuitively, it is an easy conversational pace running that builds your stamina and endurance, not fast running.

Enjoy your journey.

Thank you for the advice ๐Ÿ™‚

I did my first one today, it was hard but we did it ๐Ÿ˜€
